UK prostitution laws blamed for murders in Hong Kong

4 posts in this topic

I began reading the link trying to ascertain the correlation between the

murdering of the ladies and that the laws need changing.

Then I came across:

The Hong Kong police, for their part, argue that the current law is fair. It "strikes a reasonable balance between the human rights and privacy of sex workers, the well-being of other members of the community as well as the prevailing moral values of the community," a police spokesman stated in an e-mail. "The police aim to prevent the exploitation of women and girls for the purposes of prostitution, to combat organized prostitution activities and to lessen the nuisance to members of the public that 'vice activities' may cause." A more pressing goal, however, is to catch the men who are killing Hong Kong's prostitutes.

If the law was different they might not have been murdered at all, and even

if the HK police wanted to I can
