A mother-of-three named Wong must pay back more than £400,000 to the UK government. Known, that the Birmingham woman organized and ran a network of brothels across the country, including Cambridge, Birmingham, and Edinburgh.
As cited News24xx.com from Cambridge Live reports, she was snared by police after an officer posed as a client in a sting operation in Cambridge to protect vulnerable women.
The undercover officers posing as a customer contacted women on adult sites as part of an operation in 2016 to bring the madam to justice.
Judge Matthew Lowe ordered she had three months to repay the money after the specialist financial investigators undertook a probe into the illicit profit Wong had made from her crimes.
In February 2018, Cambridge Crown Court heard how Wong – a naturalized UK citizen – worked variously as a waitress, masseuse, and for more than two years as a prostitute after she first moved to England.
Then, she decided to set up brothels in London, Guildford, Birmingham, Manchester, and Edinburgh, as well as a Cambridge flat.
