Saudi mum, kids held for running vice den

By Staff

Saudi Arabia’s religious police arrested a local woman, her two daughters and a son on charges of turning their house into a vice den.

The woman, in her 50s, had pimped her daughters and had used her 20-year-old son to solicit customers, mainly expatriate workers.

Newspapers said the woman charged each customer SR500 (Dh500) and that her house in the northern town of Hafr Al Batin had been watched by members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice.

“Commission members used an arrested expatriate customer to go into her house. At first she refused to let Saudis in, but the expatriate assured her that he trusts them,” the Arabic language daily Sabq said, quoting Commission sources.

“When they went in and gave her the requested sum, other Commission members raided the house and arrested the woman, her daughters and son.”
