Court in Iran sentences prostitution ring members to over 4,000 lashes

An Iranian court has sentenced 90 members of a prostitution ring controlling 24 brothels to a total of 4,710 lashes and prison terms, according to Entekhab newspaper.

The paper, in its Saturday edition, said the ring was exposed four months ago following the arrest of a 21-year-old woman in Yaftabad, a southwestern district of Tehran.

Another prostitute working for the network, identified as Ronak, was quoted as saying that in four years of work she had "earned enough to buy a Peugeot 206".

Aside from lashes, the paper added that some of the gang members were also given jail terms of up to four years. (
