Johannesburg - Three women were arrested for running a brothel in George, police said on Sunday.

The women, all Chinese nationals, were arrested on Saturday, said Captain Bernadine Steyn.

"An SA Police Service member posed as a potential client whereafter sex was offered for payment."

She said the brothel was being run from a private home.

They are due to appear in the George Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    Have the Police in the George area got nothing better to do??? Its the oldest profession in the world, so legislate controls on it like many first world countries have, cause you NEVER going to stop it and that's a FACT not fiction!

      @slick we should b encouraging young women 2 use there minds not there bodies 2 make money. The police did the right thing I am sure wouldn't mind if ur sister or daughter worked at a brothel. I am sure u don't mind the fact that Chinese r found of using little people that should b in school

      Spot on Slick, no matter how many times the cops arrest sex workers, they will never stop this. Legalise it and control it and the tax coffers will grow. No idea what they charge in SA, but i would assume around R1000 a time? 3-4 guys a night, 5 nights a week, that's almost R100k a year tax free. How much tax is being lost by not legalising it? then again, the ANC will only steal the extra tax anyway.

      Why should something that is perfectly legal to give away for free be illegal to sell? WTF?

      sedeshan - 2012-09-28 12:54

      HaHa Rodney! True, they would steal that tax money. I wouldn't be surprised if Zuma became a pimp - use all those stolen millions and open a franchise! HaHaHa

    So what! Brothels are better, safer, and more controllable, than street whores. Legislate the profession properly and collect their taxes.

      renier.vaneeden.1 - 2012-06-17 23:45

      I wonder if you would've felt the same way if your doughter worked there. Just a thought...At least she'll pay her taxes.

      lester.rasta - 2012-06-18 00:30

      well,me i think brothel is not such a bad idea at all,crimes like robberies,drug smuggling and stuff are the most vital ones to be demolished,i mean whats the problem if we have sex whilst we still existing.

      Florence - 2012-06-18 07:18

      Brothels are to be accredited, regulated and institutionalized - whoooo I can imagine who Mr regular client wld be... Mr Mshini Spear... Lol. On a serious note, arrest all pimps, brothel runners, sex workers and their board of directors...

  • maseratifittipaldi - 2012-06-18 06:25

    Make up your mind. Is this "sex work" a job or is it a crime? Maybe it is just a crime to enjoy your work. Our President is showing us how to create more jobs. Let us all work together to build this nation.

  • Ted - 2012-06-18 06:32

    Is there a difference between a brothel and a whorehouse? Whatever difference there is, this is surely a whorehouse!

    Johannesburg - Three women were arrested for running a brothel in George, Was Johannesburg or George - I couldnt care less about a brothel

  • Kaya Sobhekwa Kages - 2012-06-18 07:44

    legalize it period

  • fred.potgieter.92 - 2012-06-18 07:50

    We have REAL CRIME in South Africa. We need the police for that. Why on earth this is still a crime and not controlled by legislation is beyond me.

  • pohunter1 - 2012-06-18 08:06

    Get the cop to answer the question (with the aid of a lie detector) if he has ever visited a prostitute and charge him.

  • hobotain - 2012-06-18 08:31

    I see nothing wrong with a Brothel... There wouldn't be a need for one If men didn't go to such places... Maybe men should be hanged..lol
