Prostitution is, as we all know, legal (at least at present). So what is the effect of this?
This is the escort girl at the centre of the assault allegations at the home of tycoon and Tory donor David Ross.
Sniezana Kobeniak is a 30-year-old Lithuanian whose English is so poor police had to use an interpreter to question her……Miss Kobeniak alleges she was cheated out of money by a man at the property who did not pay her for \’services rendered\’, and that a scuffle broke out in the early hours of last Friday.
A prostitute has the same protections of the law as anyone else does carrying on a legal activity. If she\’s assaulted then she can phone the police, if she\’s cheated she can phone the police……..
Quite why anyone thinks that making the activity illegal will protect those doing the work is difficult to understand.
