Mumbai, October 2: One of Britain’s richest person, Hamish Ogston, has been accused of abusing vulnerable sex workers from Southeast Asia. A slew of papers, the facts of which were originally disclosed by The Times newspaper, point to Ogston’s participation in trafficking Thai and Filipina sex workers, as well as hosting women who came to the nation as tourists but participated in sex work at his home.

What Exactly Has Ogston Been Charged Of?
Trafficking, unlawful employment, drug procurement, extreme exploitation, and attempting to smuggle sex workers into the nation under false pretences are among the charges levelled against Ogston. Ogston is also suspected of attempting to recruit Thai sex workers into the nation by fraudulently claiming to be “bamboo basket weavers” in 2022. Ogston is also accused of paying another Thai sex worker between 2014 and 2023 to obtain prostitutes and class-A narcotics such as crystal meth and cocaine.
Ogston strongly disputes these allegations, claiming they do not constitute systemic exploitation. Immigration, prostitution, and human trafficking legislation, as well as intentionally hiring people without the right to work or manipulating prostitution for profit, are all potential crimes. All entail lengthy jail terms. Child Trafficking in India: Parents Selling Kids to Child Traffickers for Rs 500 in Exchange of Fake Promises, Mostly From Bihar.
