Former Hosts Arrested for Prostitution Mediation to Recover Debt

Fukuoka police have arrested four individuals, including a former host from Osaka, for allegedly facilitating prostitution to recover unpaid debts known as “urikakekin” from female customers of a host club. The suspects, aged around 26, reportedly introduced these women to adult entertainment establishments in Nakasu, Fukuoka, leading to the violations of employment security laws. The accused have admitted their involvement, with two having already received summary fines. The women were recruited through scouts and had no prior connection to Fukuoka. Additionally, four people associated with the Nakasu establishments have been convicted for violating anti-prostitution laws. Source: NHK
