SEOUL, April 21 (Yonhap) -- A group of South Koreans has been arrested in Macao for allegedly engaging in the sex trade, the foreign ministry here said Tuesday.
The group, comprised of 25 women and 10 men, was arrested Monday on suspicion of prostitution, including as pimps, the ministry said.
The group worked out of Macao's casinos, according to South Korean consulate officials in Hong Kong. Macao police have said they are in search of others who are suspected of being part of the group.
The South Korean consul general has arrived in Macao from Hong Kong to determine the details, the ministry said.
It plans to inform the South Korean police of the details of the incident and take relevant measures, such as restricting passport issuance, if the allegations are found to be true.
