SWAT members are indicted for pimping

Police SWAT members from Bratislava who were caught providing protection to prostitutes and driving them to their clients charged €50 for their services.

Police SWAT members from Bratislava who were caught providing protection to prostitutes and driving them to their clients charged €50 for their services.

Over the course of a year, participants in the pimping operation earned illegally more than €210,500, the TASR newswire wrote. In total 16 female employees of a massage parlour were involved in the shady business that took place in 2008-09. Officially hired only to provide erotic massages, the women were paid from €84 to €135 for prostitution services, performing acts of sexual congress either at the Oáza (Oasis) parlour or during escort services under the protection of police SWAT members.

The prosecutor's office has indicted 11 persons, seven of whom are former police members, and a parlour manager. Two policemen also face charges following a blackmailing crossfire. The two were threatening their former colleague who threatened to expose their illegal activities but he himself ended up being "verbally blackmailed".
