Prostitution in Spain

Congress to recommend that prostitution should not be regularized in Spain

The Commission on the rights of women in Spain will recommend that prostitution should not be regularized following a careful and detailed study of this controversial and delicate subject. According to Cadena Ser It will also recommend that newspapers omit advertisements in the contacts pages and that extra resources be put into combating mafias in Spain.

According to the Commission the regularization of prostitution would have serious legal implications and go against articles 9 and 14 of the Spanish Constitution. In addition it would also infringe labour rights.

These are the findings in the final report from the Commission on the rights of women in Spain. It also pointed out that countries which had regularized prostitution had experienced more mafia activity and human trafficking.

The report says that more resources are required for the protection of women who have been the victim of human trafficking.

It also said that there should be a campaign directed at men in order to reduce demand for prostitutes. Another finding was that sex adverts in magazines and newspapers should be prohibited.
