The Tribunal de Penafiel sentenced a former bar owner for aiding prostitution, to pay money earned from prostitution to the State after having been calculated the difference between the declared income and his assets.

The former manager of a Lixa alternating house in Felgueiras was sentenced to pay 253,000 euros to the State, an amount that the Tribunal de Penafiel estimated to be derived from the practice of aiding prostitution and illegal immigration.

The owner was also sentenced to two years and three months imprisonment, suspended.
