Just two days after at least nine women were seen taken away from a tiny massage parlor on a side street off Hai Chang Jie, another clean-up operation took place on the street. 

 



Spotted at around 9pm Tuesday June 5th, about 20 law enforcement personnel swept the small street in the Shekou Sub-District of Nanshan in Shenzhen, China.



Unlike a similar operation on May 11th that targeted the bars on the street, this raid, spearheaded by the Shekou Police, was a joint operation involving many law enforcement groups, and targeted a variety of different businesses.

 


Witnesses reported seeing them not only on Hai Chang Street between GongYuan Nanlu and Kangle Lu, but also at businesses on the small parallel street Shangle Lu.

 


Restaurants, noodle shops, repair shops, spas and, of course, bars were approached and inspected.

 


Some foreigners were asked to show their passports; but were otherwise left alone.

 


"They accepted a photocopy of my passport," one foreigner told us, "and they were very polite."

 


We didn't see any business closures take place; although we did see at least seven women taken away in police vans. 

 

The following statement was given when we asked why the raid took place: 

为持续强化社会面治安防控工作,进一步规范酒吧场所经营管理,消除治安、消防安全隐患,严厉打击黄、赌、毒、酗酒斗殴、寻衅滋事等违法犯罪行为,蛇口街道联合辖区各职能部门统一研究部署,成立清查酒吧专项联合行动小组对海昌酒吧街开展清查行动,营造和谐稳定的社会治安环境。
WeChat Translation: In order to continuously strengthen the work of prevention and control of public security, further standardize the operation and management of bar premises, eliminate hidden dangers to public security and fire safety, and crack down on illegal and criminal acts such as pornography, gambling, drug trafficking, drunken fighting, and quarrelling, The various functional departments of Shekou Street Joint Administrative Area shall conduct unified research and deployment, set up a special joint operational group to conduct an inventory of Haichang Bar Street and create a harmonious and stable social security environment.
