Vagrant Ordinance and Brothel Ordinance need amendment

 

The Vagrant Ordinance and the Brothel Ordinance should be amended to meet the requirements of present day, Dean of the Faculty of Law at the General Sir John Kothalawala Defence University Dr. Prathibha Mahanamahewa said.

He was addressing the press in Colombo during the launch of three books on use of condoms. Dr. Mahanamahewa said the use of condoms for safe sex must be promoted in Sri Lanka, and suggested parliamentarians take on the task of doing so.

He said HIV/ AIDS and other STDs were in the increase and asked why there was no tax imposed on Thai female sex workers who work freely in Sri Lanka, while the Police arrest poor and vulnerable Sri Lankan female sex workers.
