Pros­ti­tutes fake health cer­tifi­cates

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS -

PROS­TI­TUTES are rort­ing the safe-sex sys­tem by forg­ing sig­na­tures and de­fraud­ing broth­els, a court has heard.

Mining worker turned pros­ti­tute Rougiy­a­tou Faal, 32, told the Bris­bane Mag­is­trates Court she be­lieved it was com­mon prac­tice for girls to forge doc­tor’s cer­tifi­cates “as the other girls in the in­dus­try were do­ing the same thing”.

The Bracken Ridge woman, who works un­der the name Sierra, told po­lice when she was charged on March 14 this year that she “ei­ther just didn’t have time to go to the doc­tor” or “it was in­con­ve­nient to go to the doc­tor” and forg­ing was the easy way out.

Faal, who worked at broth­els Mon­tecito and Plat­inum 175 in Bowen Hills, was speak­ing after she pleaded guilty to six charges of fraud and four of forgery. She was fined $1500.
