Sentencing him to three-and-a-half years, Judge Jeremy Carey: “You were up to your neck in the sex trade for your own financial benefit.“This kind of sex trade is a blight on neighbourhoods - prostitutes speaking of eviction notices because of neighbours being visited by clients going to the wrong premises.” Prosecutor James Lofthouse said Ziemys took 50 per cent of the prostitutes’ income and charged them rent for the premises he “managed”.Tomas Ziemys was accused of being responsible for operating 10 brothels in Medway, Maidstone and London.
Police went there again on April 28 after complaints from other residents.
A number of Lithuanian women were found there, along with used condoms.
Of those surveyed, opposition to Muslim immigration was especially intense among older people, while those under 30 were less opposed.

Ziemys, of Highgrove Road, Chatham, denied three charges of controlling prostitution for gain and 10 of keeping a brothel used for prostitution.
