Six Admit Running A Brothel In Birmingham
Six people have admitted running a brothel in Birmingham which is said to have made £7 million.
Stefanos Neophytou, aged 25, Achilleos Neophytou, 66, Marilyn Egan, 65, Anita O'Donnell, 55, Ogun Olufunlola, 30, and 60-year-old Martin Tierney all pleaded guilty to a count of keeping a brothel used for prostitution.
The charge admitted by the defendants stated that they "acted or assisted'' in the management of the Libra Club in Summer Hill Road, Birmingham, between January 1, 2010 and February 1, 2015.
The club was raided in the early hours of February 10 last year following months of surveillance.
At the time of the police operation, officers said that up to 20 women had been working there.
Outreach workers offered help to 13 women who were working at the club, but none were said to be under any form of duress.
The raid, involving 50 officers followed a series of incidents at the club, including an arson attack, a firearms incident and several outbreaks of disorder.
Egan, of Pershore Road, Edgbaston; O'Donnell, of Slade Lane, Hall Green, Birmingham; Olufunlola, of Roseby Street, Spring Hill, Birmingham, Tierney, of Sheffield Road, Sutton Coldfield, were charged by police last year.
They will be sentenced alongside Stefanos and Achilleos Neophytou, whose addresses cannot be published, at Birmingham Crown Court on October 17.
