Ex-cop 'vice-ring muscle'

Simon Dempsey, 40, was also accused of “controlling the purse strings” and “financing the operation” — which detectives believe netted a crime gang more than £1m.
The claims against the former PSNI officer were made during a bail application by Rong Chen, who is charged with human trafficking and controlling brothels.
