A Filipino gay tourist was jailed for two months today, Sept 4, after he admitted in Eastern Court that he violated his condition of stay as a visitor by soliciting sex for a fee.

M Arabejo II pleaded guilty when he was charged before Magistrate Bina Chainrai two days after his arrest at the Best Western Hotel in Causeway Bay by an undercover officer who responded to an online advertisement offering sex for pay.

The officer reportedly called a telephone number that the advertiser provided on Sept. 2 and he was directed to Room 1611 of the hotel on Bowrington Road.

The prosecution said Arabejo, who was dressed as a woman in a sexy outfit, opened the door and greeted the officer when he arrived at the room at about 2pm. The defendant allegedly told him the fee for a full sex service was $2,000.

When the defendant began to disrobe, the officer announced he was a policeman and arrested him. Officers who searched the hotel room found 10 unused condoms and a bottle of KY gel.

During investigation, Arabejo was found to have arrived on a visitor visa in Hong Kong on Mar 11 this year and was permitted to remain until Sept 7.

The prosecutor said the defendant admitted the offense under caution and was charged with breach of condition of stay.   

Chainrai gave a two month’s discount on the defendant’s sentence for his guilty plea.
