Strip club chain owner detained on suspicion of involving strippers in prostitution
The clubs are located in Saransk, Izhevsk and Tver.
The owner of a strip club chain in Saransk, Izhevsk and Tver has been detained on suspicion of involving his employees in prostitution, reported the press service of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation. His other subordinates are also named in the case.
A man of Udmurtia set up a chain of clubs with employees not only dancing for the customers but providing sex services as well. His subordinates, as directors and administrators in the clubs, employed at least nine women as sex workers. They were promised high wages and waitressing and dancing jobs.
The clubs and houses of the persons involved have been searched; computers, documents and money were seized. The investigators are establishing details of the illegal activities of the suspects.
The court arrested four persons involved in the case; another one is under recognizance not to leave the place.
The Russian authorities are introducing more and more measures aimed at the “sovereignty of the Internet” and, in general, IT technologies. By and large, this is somewhat contrary to the very nature of its development, but given that at the very top, we have people who are new to the Internet and modern technologies, this is of little concern to anyone. Ideally, Russia should shut itself up in terms of information realm – without giving out anything, and most importantly, without receiving from the outside. Against this background, the domestic IT sector is happy to “reinvent the wheel,” receiving state references and budget money.
