The court heard that Lee, a freelance insurance agent at the time, got to know a person known only as "Boss" in For about two years and five months from April , Lee's role in the syndicate included liaising with the prostitutes before they arrived in Singapore and making travel arrangements for them.
When the sex workers arrived in Singapore, he briefed them on their working arrangement and asked them for sexy photographs of themselves. He also collected prostitution earnings daily. On the night of Sep 19, , simultaneous police raids were conducted at three places, and Lee was arrested along with several sex workers. Lee admitted to managing a group of Thai prostitutes, and a follow-up raid of his vehicle and home uncovered several phones, a laptop and notebooks.
Subsequent investigations revealed that a Filipino woman had approached Lee saying she wanted to work for the syndicate, while posing as a foreign domestic worker in Singapore.
There was a "significant degree of scale and sophistication in this enterprise", said the prosecutor, with at least nine Thai prostitutes involved. On top of this, Lee also promoted the sex workers' services on platforms to establish the enterprise's presence and reach a larger target audience. The running of the three brothels "clearly encroached into residential areas", said the prosecutor, and there is a transnational element in this case as the prostitutes were all "specifically procured from Thailand".
Defence lawyer S S Dhillon said his client had pleaded guilty and cooperated extensively with investigations, as he was the only one in the syndicate who was arrested. There was "no coercion, no abuse of prostitutes, and none of them are underage", said the lawyer. He said his client has two children and is married to a foreigner himself.
