The three men received fines and suspended sentences of 18 months for aggravated assault.
A bizarre story was reported in August 2005: two women, 19 and 29 years old, had rented two rooms in the Pascha and announced over the internet that they would pay any man 50 Euro for sex; the goal was to find out who could have more partners in one day.
The brothel was raided on 5 September 2017 by about 250.
The women insisted that they had paid the men from their own vacation money and had not received any compensation from Bild or Pascha.
