Massage parlor scandal in court with a new twist

Date Posted: 2005-12-22

Arrests were made two months ago in a soapland scandal involving underage girls performing massages, and more, for customers.

What made it even bigger news was that the heat massage bath therapy salon owner was also blackmailing his customers who’d had sexual relations with the young girls. The owner and three associates had their first day in court Monday, and the scandal broadened.

The prosecution told the court “The Okinawa Lawyers Union lawyer asked for 25% of the commissions for compensation money.” A massage parlor patron who used the services of a girl under 18, and who was then blackmailed, told the court “It was at the lawyer’s office that the lawyer threatened me. He told me that if I didn’t want anyone to know (what I had done) I have to pay.”

A prosecution investigator testified that the lawyer sent the threatening letter to about 80 customers, telling them “we will be trying to make the scandal duietly and peacefully. You have to pay the commission. Most victims, the investigator says, paid up quickly.

A local newspaper reporter asked the lawyer “why did you help the bad guys by asking for blackmail?” The lawyer insists “I did not know this was a blackmail scandal.” The massage parlor story first was reported in the November 3rd Island Market, detailing how girls under 18 were recruited to work in the massage salon, then forced to perform sex acts with the male customers. Once the customers had sexual relations with the underage girls, they were approached by the owner and told to pay a fee. The blackmail scheme was uncovered when one customer went to police.
