Inside Sweden 2007-05-11

Sweden`s trade union movement in shock today after union members show surprising support for the country`s far right xenophobic party. As Swedish Radio`s special climate week wraps up, Inside Sweden looks at the impact of our environmentally unfriendly lifestyles on developing countries. And a little later in the programme, male circumcision has been historically less common in Sweden – than in many other parts of the world, but now the tragic ramifications of ceremonial and often illegal circumcisions being performed in multicultural Sweden`s is forcing authorities to act.

Smoke in a Movie and Get an R Rating

Prager H1: The Motion Picture Association intends to place smoking on the same level as sex, violence and drug use. It’s foolish and counter-productive, but otherwise a great idea… The liberal media is trying to make an issue of Rudy Giuliani’s nuanced view on abortion. Will Republicans fall for this trick?

Prager H3: Per usual, callers set the agenda.

Human Trafficing & Swedish Sex Trade Permitted

Prosecutor failed to press charges three and a half years ago

The sex trade involving Russian women could have been stopped three and a half years ago, but the prosecutor chose not to press any charges.

It was back in 2003 during a police investigation, when a woman said that she had come to Sweden with her boyfriend (one of the men who are now charged with pimping the Russian prostitutes), to become a prostitute. A woman called Tatiana, who today has confessed to pimping women, arranged with an apartment and showed the way to the “red light district” in Gothenburg…

Another Russian woman was also found in that same “red light district”, and she gave information that could tie her to the people who are no standing trial.

The prosecutor still felt that they had too little proof of a crime being committed back then. So when the decision came to drop the investigation, the stake out of an apartment (later it was clear that this is where the prostituted women had been staying) stopped.

The woman, Tatiana, and one man have confessed to pimping Russian women. Two other men haven’t confessed to anything, they are denying all charges.

The 20 “johns” involved in this trial are being called in to testify and stand trial starting on the16th of May.

Giuliani versus Obama on Terror With Dennis Prager

Prager H1: Rudi Giuliani made a speech yesterday in which he stated that if the Democrats win the White House, we will go on the defensive against terrorism. His statement angered Barack Obama. He thinks Rudi impugned his patriotism. How did Rudi do that?… Why is Pat Tillman’s ultimate sacrifice any less heroic because he was killed by friendly fire?

Swedish Prostitution/Trafficking Court Case

Two of the pimps involved in the big court case here in Gothenburg have now confessed to their crimes. One man and one woman are now confessing to the charges against them.

20 men are being charged with having bought sex from Russian prostitutes.

 

We have a friend who lives in the Netherlands, where prostitution is LEGAL, and the other day when I was talking to her in instant messages, she said she was going to watch Oprah. She said that she didn’t really like the constant commercial breaks, though – I said well who does – and she then told me that at night time (one would hope way after all Dutch children have gone to bed!) the commercials on TV are mostly about sex, call girls, clubs, you name it! That’s one of the downsides with living in a country that has made prostitution legal, I suppose…

(Prostitution in the Netherlands has been legal since January 1988, when it was defined as a legal profession. However, prostitutes must be at least 18, while for non-commercial sex the age of consent is 16. Clients must be at least 16. Violation of either age limit is a crime for the other party, and possibly for a pimp.

The legalized status allows prostitutes to have access to the social security system, since 1996 sex workers have paid income tax, and reforms in 1999 gave prostitution the same status as any other form of labor. Prostitutes form unions, and are otherwise treated like any other self-employed trades person. Advertising their services is likewise tolerated.

Health and social services are readily available, but the women are not required to undergo regular health checks. A recent study found that despite health rules, about 7 percent of Dutch prostitutes have HIV/AIDS. )
