CCTV expose prompts crackdown on Dongguan sex trade, paper says

A total of 67 people were arrested and 12 entertainment venues were shut down late Sunday night in Dongguan in Guangdong province after China Central Television (CCTV) revealed a dozen hotels in the city were offering sex services, Global Times reported Monday. All local police station heads who were in charge of the districts where the illicit entertainment venues were operating have been suspended pending further investigation, it said. Undercover CCTV reporters went to hotels in five areas of Dongguan, a city which has been infamous for its large scale illegal sex industry for over a decade. The video taken by a hidden camera showed hotel managers organizing young women to appear in front of the reporter for selection. The video also showed similar “beauty show” activities taking place in KTV rooms, the report said.
