Alkmaar prostitutes out in the cold
Published on:Saturday, July 30, 2011 - 09:00
Sex workers in the city of Alkmaar are furious about the decision to close two-thirds of the city's prostitution windows.
The mayor of Alkmaar has been fighting for years against the city's main sex entrepreneur who he accuses of money laundering. Now the highest court in the Netherlands has ruled in favour of the mayor and ordered the man to close all 92 of his prostitution windows.
There are currently 140 prostitution windows in Alkmaar, a city with fewer than 100,000 inhabitants.
