Korea: Prostitute Commits Suicide, Blaming Police

11-01-2008 21:28

As the intense police crackdown on Seoul’s infamous Changan-dong brothel district continued over three months, a “laidoff” prostitute hanged herself.

The woman, 36, was found by a friend who couldn’t reach her by phone for more than10 days. The friend visited her apartment and called poiice after smelling a strange rotten odor.

The brothel where she worked for several years was shuttered by the police. Since then, she has had economic difficulty, according to her friends, Yonhap reported Saturday.

“She often left accusatory messages on the Web site of the police, but they were erased from the message board. She became very enraged,” a friend of her was quoted as saying, adding because of her age, she couldn’t find work in other brothels.

The owner of a brothel had also committed suicide on Aug. 29.
