2 Pinoy gays jailed 2 months for selling sex

21 August 2017

By Vir B. Lumicao

Two Filipino gay tourists were each sentenced to two months in jail on Aug 10 after they both pleaded guilty in Eastern Court to charges of soliciting sex and breaching immigration rules two nights earlier.

Defendants Prince Galabin, 20, and Egypt Nacion, 28, both unemployed, appeared along with a third Filipino, Stephen Mark Polines, 28, before Magistrate Bina Chainrai for plea taking.

But only Galabin and Nacion pleaded guilty to one count each of “soliciting for an immoral purpose” and “breach of condition of stay.”

Chainrai convicted the two Filipinos and sentenced each to two months in jail for each offence, to be served concurrently.

Polines was ordered to return to Eastern Court on Aug 24.

A prosecution report said the three were arrested separately during anti-street prostitutes operations mounted by police in Wanchai on the night of Aug 8 and 9.

Galabin approached police undercover agent David Neil Bennet as the officer, posing as a sex customer, stood at the corner of Luard Road and Jaffe Road at 10:29pm on Aug 8, the report said.

The Filipino offered Bennet sexual services for $2,000. When the officer agreed, Galabin invited him to his room in Holiday Inn Express, Causeway Bay. In the hotel room, Bennet identified himself as an officer and arrested Galabin for soliciting.

After turning Galabin over to his team, Bennet went back to his post at the same street corner in Wanchai. At 12:17am on Aug 9, he was approached by Nacion, who chatted with him and also offered him sex for $2,000.

Bennet accepted the offer and Nacion took the officer on a taxi to the same hotel in Causeway Bay. When they got to the guest room, the agent took off his cover and arrested the Filipino for soliciting.

 Polines was arrested on the same night after he also invited Bennet to the same hotel for sex at the same price.

Galabin, Nacion and Polines were also charged with breaching their condition of stay when their passports showed they were in Hong Kong as tourists. Galabin arrived on Aug 3, Nacion on Aug 1 and Polines on Aug 8.
