Taiwan allows special sex trade zones

TAIPEI (AFP) - Taiwan's parliament on Friday passed a controversial bill to allow red-light districts so it can more easily regulate the massive underground sex industry. Under the bill, local governments can set up and manage special sex trade zones where licensed prostitutes will be allowed to ply their trade. But any sex worker providing his or her services outside the zones can be fined up to TW$30,000 (S$1,270) while their clients and pimps also face a penalty. The bill was introduced by the cabinet after the constitutional court scrapped a much-criticised regulation that punished only prostitutes while letting their clients go free.
