Porn star arrested in Singapore over ‘sex trafficking’

A porn star from the United States has been arrested in the city of Singapore after authorities found that he was producing and distributing “adult products” online, the New York Times reported.

Misha Allen, a 34-year-old California resident, was arrested on Monday after Singapore police and customs officials noticed that Allen’s website, which is still online, contained adult material, according to The Times.

The online store, called The Playroom, was used by Allen to produce and distribute “adult” films and videos that were distributed in a variety of countries, including the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates and Malaysia, according the Times.

In a statement on Tuesday, Allen’s lawyers said that they were not aware of the arrest.

Allen was arrested at his home in the early morning hours of Tuesday and was taken to a police station in the central city of Kallang, the Times reported, citing police and a law enforcement official.

He was held in a high-security jail in Kalleng for more than two hours before being released on bail, the paper said.

Authorities in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur have said that authorities in the country were aware of Allen’s online activities but that they did not find any evidence that he is connected to any illegal activities.

Allen had been employed as a sex worker since 2006 and is believed to have sold his work online.

He has also reportedly produced erotic films, videos and photos on his website, The Playful Life.

In the U.S., the United Nations and other human rights organizations have called on the government to enact legislation that would make it illegal to produce, distribute and possess child pornography and to prosecute online sex producers.
