Barge and swingers clubs
Arrested and then indicted at the end of September, the seven members of the network, three women and four men, had been acting since January - including during the period of confinement - in apartments, on barges and in libertine clubs, according to a police source. .

Among them, the organizer and her assistant were arrested aboard a barge in the Hauts-de-Seine, a co-organizer in his hostess bar in the 17th arrondissement and an operator of a swinger club in the 16th arrondissement of the capital. .
Almost 60,000 euros and a vehicle were also seized.
A month ago, a landlord suspected of renting out his homes to prostitutes escaped prosecution because he could not characterize the "intentional element".
The file was closed and the residents, outraged, saw the prostitutes return.
