Godma tells girl to be hooker

When she needed money, the 15-year-old girl turned to her godmother for help.

The godmother's way of helping?

She suggested that the Secondary 3 student sell her body. She then found a customer for the underage girl and kept some of the earnings.

Yesterday, the 45-year-old godmother pleaded guilty to procuring the girl for the purpose of prostitution, abetting a customer to have commercial sex with her and living off her earnings.

The woman, who cannot be named to protect the minor, was jailed a year and fined $4,000 on the first two charges, with the third charge taken into consideration for sentencing.

The court heard that the accused, who was then working as a quality assurance inspector, met her goddaughter on Sept 30 last year.

NEED MONEY

As they chatted, the girl said she needed money. The accused suggested that she become a prostitute.

The next day, they went to the Chinese Garden and met the woman's boyfriend, Mr Md Jewel Abdul Latif, 31, a Bangladeshi national.

Mr Jewel introduced the girl to a fellow Bangladeshi national, Md Zahangir Alam (Ronju) Ali Sheikh, 30, a marine trades worker.

The woman ­told the girl to have sex with Zahangir for $200 and to give her $50 from her earnings.
