Coconuts logo Coconuts 16/2/2017

Just yesterday, 45-year old German (and Singapore Permanent Resident) Michael Frank Hartung was slapped with six charges for “allegedly organizing tours overseas involving sex with minors,” according to Channel NewsAsia.

The charges were broken down into two charges for three separate occasions – promotion of sex tours as well as caught possessing a total of 245 obscene videos and eight uncensored recordings.

According to court documents, the businessman – a co-founder of business consulting firm OPTIIS among other roles, as revealed in his LinkedIn profile – was said to have met four Singaporeans to promote the sex tours, two others back in September 2015 at a Starbucks café in Raffles City Shopping Centre, and two more at a bar along Mackenzie road in April last year.

Currently, Hartung is out on $15,000 bail, with the intention to dispute the charges. The next hearing is set on February 28th.

Hartung could face up to a 10-year jail term with a fine if convicted.
