Racket clients named

Shalveen Chand

RENOWNED businessmen from Suva and people in top positions were named as clients in the trial of two men alleged to have been operating a sex ring.

Inoke Raikadroka and Mohammed Sheefaz Sagaitu are charged with domestic trafficking and slavery for allegedly keeping girls, some underaged, and using them as callgirls.

Yesterday, Mr Raikadroka's caution interview was read out in which he named clients who were prominent members of the Suva business community.

The court heard that Mr Raikadroka had told police the price for sex varied for the girls. It was read out that some clients paid as much as $500 while some were paid only $100.

The court heard most of the girls used by the two men were underaged and in high school, some were unemployed and came from poor backgrounds while others were children or grandchildren of prominent people.

The girls and their family members were named in the caution interview. Also named were the places where the girls were taken by the clients.

The court heard Mr Raikadroka would keep most of the money earned by the girls in his "care" because he was able to budget the money properly.

He also said he seldom gave money to the girls because he provided them with what they needed.
