Osaka sex club busted, detained Filipina hostesses
TOKYO (TR) – Osaka prefectural police on Wednesday announced the arrest of a club manager who had detained a number of Filipina hostesses to supply sexual services on improper licensing charges, reports the Sankei Shimbun (Jan. 30).
Officers from the peace preservation division took Akira Goami, 55, the manager of club Midori, which is located in Yodogawa Ward, into custody for operating a sex-club establishment in a region prohibited by the Law Regulating Adult Entertainment Businesses.
On January 27 of last year, a 27-year-old hostess at Midori is alleged to have provided sexual services to a 40-year-old male.
Goami also confined several Filipina hostesses during non-working hours at the club. Wages for the women averaged 50,000 yen per month.
Four Japanese men were also arrested for participating in the arrangement of fake marriages with the Filipina women. Officers are now investigating how the women became employees at club Midori.
