By Staff

Three police officers are standing trial in Abu Dhabi on charges of running a prostitution den and bribing others to get them girls for their business.

The prosecutor accused one of them of offering Dh25,000 to an Asian defendant in return for handing him a woman accused of indulging in prostitution, the Arabic language daily 'Al Bayan' said.

The officer also offered to cancel legal measures against a number of offenders if the Asian man agrees to hand him the woman to work for him.

“The prosecutor accused the three officers of running a vice den, facilitating prostitution and encouraging that woman to practice prostitution,” the paper said.

It said the case involved five other Asians who were accused of taking bribe and forging official documents.
