A court in Ho Chi Minh City sentenced a Russian woman to three years imprisonment for recruiting Eastern European prostitutes for Vietnamese clients, state media reported on Tuesday.

Elena Prokofeva, 28, was convicted of “procuring prostitutes” following a police sting in January, the Tuoi Tre news site reported.

She was found to have recruited five women, including one Russian and two Ukrainian citizens, to come to Vietnam to provide sex at 10 million dong (645 dollars) for 10 hours.

Prokofeva will be deported after she serves her term.

Prostitution is illegal in Vietnam, with procurement punishable by up to seven years imprisonment.
