Prostitution on the rise in BelgiumFriday, 15 May 2015 17:41
Several prostitution and trafficking rings operate in Belgium, notably from Bulgaria, Romania, Spain, Portugal, Hungary and Nigeria, explains the head of the police trafficking unit, Wim Bontinck. He believes that the rise is linked with the ease of travelling between the countries and continents.
Prostitution is not punishable by law, unless a person is exploited by a third party, which is usually the case. Eight out of ten or about 21000 women, are in effect implicated in this situation. The fight against the pimps is difficult but on the right direction, highlights Wim Bontinck.
