But now legislation put before the cabinet by Equal Opportunity Minister Mara Carfagna, a former showgirl and topless model, will punish sex workers' clients as well as the prostitutes themselves and their pimps. The new laws would "crack down hard" on prostitution as it encourages trafficking in women and sexual slavery, Ms Carfagna said.
But I realise it exists and, like drugs, cannot be wiped out," Ms Carfagna, 32, told a news conference after the cabinet approved her bill. Chemical castration for sex offenders. Parkinson's caused child porn habit. Pimps responsible for under-aged prostitutes would face six to 12 years in jail and fines of between 15, and , euros.
The clients of under-aged sex workers, meanwhile, will be sent to prison for between six months and four years with fines of up to 6, euros. Sex workers under the age of 18 without Italian citizenship will be sent back to their countries of origin if there are guarantees that they will be returned to their families.
An estimated 50, to 70, women are engaged in prostitution in Italy. A third of them are foreigners, largely from Eastern European countries such as Albania and Romania, as well as Russia and west Africa. The women often have no protection from the sun and rain, nowhere to go to the lavatory and little more than plastic crates or breeze blocks to sit on during the wait between clients. They have sex in the open or, more commonly, in the cars of clients.
Sex worker welfare groups said they opposed the new laws because prostitutes would be forced to work in apartments organised by pimps, making them more vulnerable to violence and abuse. It is just a way for the government to push the problem underground. Forcing girls off the street will make them harder to reach for the police and for welfare groups who are concerned about their health and their rights.
