On November 11 and 12, gang member Sho Mori, who manages Stylish Bar Felice, is alleged to have employed three girls, aged between 14-15, to hand out advertising leaflets in the street and serve customers.
Stylish Bar Felice, located in the Sonezaki area, is classified as a “girl’s bar,” which means it is licensed as a drinking establishment but offers services approaching that of an adult-entertainment club.
Mori, who has been charged with violating child welfare laws and the Labor Standards Act, admits to the allegations. He was introduced to the girls through a broker. They were paid a wage of 1,200 yen per hour, according to the Mainichi Shimbun (Nov. 25).
