Pulau Labuan Nightlife

  • by speakthetruth Written Mar 7, 2008

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This bar and most of the other bars in Labuan are fronts for sex slavery. The girls are tricked to come there from Philippones and some from Indonesia. They are told that they will work as waitress or saleslady but when they arrive there passports are taken from them. They are forced to go with customers for sex and if they dont then they get a fine which is added onto the money they must pay back befor ethey can go home. They are locked up during the day and not allowed out unless booked by a paying customer. Immigration and police know what is going on but they turn a blind eye and you can see them in the bars some nights and the girls have to go with them for free...
    Other bars are the same, Popin, Tip Top and most other small bars.
