The Supreme Court of Canada has terminated tree laws which restrict prostitution.
All nine judges voted to establish unconstitutional the country’s laws, which prohibit open brothels to offer sexual services in public places, as well as live on the earnings of prostitution.
Resolution is a victory for sexual services workers who sought to provide safer working conditions and respect for their rights to life, liberty and security of person.
The Supreme Court explained that currently prostitution itself is legal, according to Canadian law, and the three laws did work of sex-workers unsafe. Now the Parliament of Canada has a year to ensure that rework laws, otherwise they will be simply removed from the legislation. The Court emphasized in its judgment that “the regulation of prostitution is a complex and sensitive issue”.
