The possible decriminalisation of prostitution will remain on the agenda of the newly appointed SA Law Reform Commission (SALRC), President Jacob Zuma said on Monday. The commission hasbeen working on "Project 107", which deals with sex work, for over a decade, he said in written reply to a parliamentary question. "Research on the various projects of the commission as was approved by the previous commission continues unabated," Zuma said. "This research is done by a team of full time researchers who have been assigned to the commission."
Alas, many medical studies reveals that prostitution is harmful to women. To legalise prostitiution has not led to better control, but indeed as seen in the Netherlands, has led to an increase in Human Trafficking.
