Wang, a recent university graduate, set up an escort business with expats and solicited clients on the internet. The prostitutes could earn upwards of RMB 2,500 per client, but had to split the profits with Wang, who was acting as an intermediary.

Wang was able to provide a number of people from various countries, but most were foreign exchange students he had met in Shanghai. Wang was able to set up 15 transactions from 2012 to 2013.

Wang was sentenced along with two others, Xia and Liu. In passing its verdict, the People’s Court of Huangpu District said:

Xia was involved in the feet washing business. According to the illegal demands of clients, he would introduce them to prostitutes. At the same time, Wang provided prostitutes as per the clients’ demands.
