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. )

Buying Sex & Shoplifting – Same Punishment

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — MonkeyPrincess @ 19:28PM

The maximum penalty for buying sex is the same as the punishment for shoplifting. Police and prosecutors want this to change!

During the eight years since the law against buying sex came, nobody has yet been sentenced to the maximum six months in prison. Back then trafficking and human smuggling was almost unheard of

What the law was for was buying sex from a prostitute on the street, and not by going to a brothel, buying sex from foreign women brought here against their own will.

Now the law should be changed, there should be a difference in the punishment for different kinds of violations against this law.

The average sex buyer probably doesn’t think that he is committing a very serious crime at all. But in some cases the sex buyer becomes part of the organized crime of human smuggling and sex trafficking.

The sex buyers are the ones making sex trafficking and human smuggling profitable.

If there is a maximum penalty, why not sentence people to this maximum penalty? If people don’t get punished, they will continue to do the crime!

Selling SEX in SWEDEN Legal – Buyers of SEX to be Sentenced to Prison

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — Administrator @ 02:38AM

20 men between the ages of 20 and 77 are now facing prison sentences for having bought sex from Russian prostitutes. The men are part of a trafficking investigation that has been going on since wintertime last year. This will be an interesting court case, since the prosecutor wants the court to try whether or not buying sex from a foreign woman who has come here through trafficking is to be considered worse than buying sex from a Swedish woman on the street. The 20 men have during a couple of years, on single or repeated occasions, bought sex from Russian girls by phone calls.

Four other people are being charged for pimping the women, three men and one woman. Part of this charge is also the trafficking, human smuggling.
