Unfortunately they do not have a breakdown of what the crimes were.

I had a look on the BRA - (The Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention) website

and found the following item dated 20/01/09

Sex-linked human trafficking in Sweden mapped

http://www.bra.se/extrba/news/?module_instance=22&id=6

This is in effect a review of the effectiveness of their 1999 law which made payment for sex illegal.

They need public support to report suspicions.

It would appear that their law has failed.

I've never thought much of the argument that prostitution is a safety valve for aggressive males, so prostitutes are saving other women from being raped. However, on the face of it that's what these figures seem to mean?

That's right, Biggus. In the wise words of Cynthia Payne, 'If a man isn't despunked regularly, he's just a bleeding nuisance.'

I think directly linking the two (banning of prostitution and rise in sexual crime) infers something less than lovely about punters.

I think the technical increase theory is much more likely - not to mention much more palletable for punters and WGs alike.
