A woman convicted of managing a brothel has been sentenced to five months imprisonment.
Gita Mani who was the owner of Farry's Massage Parlor in Samabula arranged for clients to have sex at the massage parlor.
Magistrate Priyantha Liyanage said that the evidence revealed she earned money by providing women for sex services.
He adds that the women were not paid any salary and were compelled to work as sex workers for a living.
Magistrate Liyanage stated that this has become a lucrative business where unskilled women were used and if action is not taken it will pave the way for others.
Defence counsel Jiten Reddy informed the court that he will be appealing the conviction and sentence.
