Hotel 81 licensee granted discharged not amounting to acquittal: SINGAPORE: The licensee of the Hotel 81 chain

SINGAPORE: The licensee of the Hotel 81 chain - the biggest budget hotel chain here with more than 20 hotels spanning from Geylang to Chinatown - was granted a discharge not amounting to an acquittal for five vice-related charges. Chu Poh Yong, 42, general manager of the chain was originally accused of allowing prostitutes to operate at two hotels in Jiak Chuan Road, off Keong Saik Road, and Jalan Besar. The alleged offences occurred between April 27 and June 10, last year. Under the Hotels Licensing Regulations, a licensee should not allow anyone he knows to be a prostitute to occupy a room in the hotel or frequent the premises. In a short hearing on Wednesday morning, the Prosecution told the Court it would be applying for a discharge not amounting to an acquittal for the five charges. However, no reasons were cited for the application.
