Withdraw recommendations on impunity for pimps: NGO

India Blooms

Kolkata, Jan 3 (IBNS): Anti-sex trafficking organization Apne Aap Women Worldwide has started a campaign asking UN Women, UNAIDS, UNFPA and UNDP to withdraw recommendations of a note over -Sex Work and the Law in Asia and Pacific: A UNDP,UNFPA and UNAIDS report, Oct 2012 and HIV and the Law: Risks, Rights and Health, UNDP, 2012- asking countries to decriminalze pimping, buying sex and brothel-keeping.

“Such a move will fuel huge sex-trafficking as those who buy and sell women will get off scot free,” said Apne Aap Founder, Ruchira Gupta.

“The UN Women note and the UNAIDS reccommendations are in violation of agreed upon protocols and conventions that India and other member sates of the UN are party to. This backdoor attempt to push through policies without getting the formal agreement of member states is a a dangerous precedent. If India and other members states ignore this, other treaties and conventions may be flouted as well,” she said. Continue Reading.
