AGENCE PRESSE FRANCE - Apr 5 - Belgian prosecutors are seeking a suspended prison sentence for Sigurd Vedal, an entrepreneur accused of promoting prostitution through a dating site for rich men and young women - RichMeetBeautiful.com. He appeared in court on Thursday. In 2017, as students returned to the Free University of Brussels after their summer break, they were greeted by a truck carrying a mobile advertising hoarding. The poster showed a woman's bosom barely covered by a bra and the slogan: "Hey female students, improve your lifestyle, go out with a Sugar Daddy." The truck was seized after the university complained to the police, and Vedal has since been arrested and charged with "incitement to debauchery and prostitution". He insisted that he simply wanted to encourage customers to seek dates that were "out of the ordinary." In addition to a six-month suspended sentence, prosecutors asked that Vedal be fined 40K Eur and his company Digisec Media a further 250K Eur. The Belgian court will give its verdict on May 8. Vedal is also under investigation in France, accused of "aggravated pimping" after publicising a version of his site on a Paris campus.
