HA NOI (VNS) — The Ha Noi Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs Department has proposed publicising the names of people who hire prostitutes and requiring them to do community service.
Currently, those who pay for sex only have to pay a fine.
The move, which aims to bring the prostitution situation in the city under control, has stirred up public controversy. Some people welcome it, while others believe that the move violates their right to privacy.
Do you think the proposal would help control the situation? How does your country deal with those who hire prostitutes illegally?
