#REUTERS. | Two Chinese and a Congolese official sentenced to 10 years in prison for pimping

Ye Jing Peng and Lili Bin were sentenced to ten years and three months in prison on November 21 for procuring Chinese nationals and using false documents, their lawyer, Ms. Nicky Bayo, said.

A Congolese official of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was sentenced to the same sentence “for having issued courtesy visas without having the power to do so,” she added.

Eight Chinese illegal residents were fined $ 1,000 each and 23 others were acquitted for lack of sufficient evidence, said Nicky Bayo.

One of the acquitted women said she received a monthly salary of $ 500 as a “waitress”.

In his indictment, the prosecutor accused the two Chinese nationals of organizing the sexual exploitation of young Chinese women in several cities of the sub-region.
