Dagenham man charged in connection with prostitution investigation

Chung Fu Wang is due to appear in court in September 

A man from Dagenham has been arrested as part of an investigation into modern slavery and human trafficking offences. 

Kent Police raided properties in Dagenham, Cambridge, Croydon and Reading on Thursday, 19 August.

They detained four people and seized 70 phones, three cars and thousands of pounds in cash that could not be accounted for. 

Officers discovered the phones were being used to run brothels in Kent and further afield. A number of vulnerable people were identified and safeguarded. 

Chung Fu Wang, 37, of Blackbourne Road in Dagenham, was among those arrested and later charged with conspiracy to control prostitution for gain. 

Lina Wang, 40, from Cambridge was charged with the same offence as well as money laundering. 

They are both due to appear at Maidstone Crown Court on Friday, 17 September. 

Two other people have not been charged but remain under investigation. 

“Modern slavery is a hidden crime and it’s rare that victims come forward, which is why it is necessary for us to carry out proactive operations like this one,” said Detective Sergeant Stacey Chapman.

“The exploitation of sex workers is often linked to organised national and international crime networks, involved in human trafficking, drugs and money laundering.

“Safeguarding vulnerable victims is at the forefront of the work we carry out and officers work alongside partners and charities to shut down suspected brothels and identify those being exploited on a regular basis.”
