China Orders Crackdown on Prostitution After Raids in Dongguan

China’s security ministry told police across the country to “firmly crack down” on prostitution, gambling and illegal drugs after state media exposed widespread prostitution in the southern manufacturing city of Dongguan.

The Ministry of Public Security convened a meeting after the reports of the sex trade thriving in Dongguan and sent a team to Guangdong province, a notice on the ministry’s website said yesterday. Security organs in every region should draw a lesson from the case and clean-up the crimes to improve people’s sense of safety and level of satisfaction, it said.
