ABS-CBNNews.com reports that the operators of Pharaoh KTV and Entertainment Center in Makati City have been charged by the Department of Justice (DOJ) for violating Republic Act 9208 or the Anti-Human Trafficking Law. The establishment-which is located at Creekside Bldg, Amorsolo corner Javier in Legaspi Village, Makati City-was raided by the authorities last September 20

 

The report cited police Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) Director Samuel Pagdilao Jr. who revealed that the charges are non-bailable. Thus, the eight operators and floor managers who were indicted will stay in jail while the trial runs.

 

After examining records of the CIDG’s raid, DOJ prosecutors found probable cause to establish that the floor managers are part of the conspiracy in Pharaoh, which reportedly "hired, received, and harbored the women for prostitution and exploitation." Pagbilao said: "This conclusion is strongly corroborated by the video presented by the ABS-CBN program XXX where it was shown that a floor manager conversed with the CIDG operatives who (posed as) customers concerning the provision of sexual services."

 

Pagbilao likewise revealed that the police are going after other "untouchable clubs" in Manila, Quezon City, Pasay City, and in Parañaque City.
