    Okay. No problem. Pay Rs.100 fine and start same business again.

    And while the police is busy with that, almost none of the buses has working breaking lights, and none of them functioning doors resulting so far in 2016 in 34 deaths to begin with. Priorities!?

    It is a crazy idea. Once it is legalized it will open door for human trafficking and possible forced sex workers and abduction. Pls look at Malaysia and some other neighboring countries before saying this. Such things instead of solving one problem, too many problems will arise.

    When will we realise we are fighting a losing battle to eliminate prostitution in Sri Lanka. This is the oldest profession in the world and many countries have given up fighting and instead legitamised them with rules, as in the USA (Nevada) for the good and safety of everybody. In the Bunny Ranch, Nevada, the women service providers have a check-up every week and their clients are monitored. They do not recruit, but women and girls come to them, to earn some money quickly to pay a hospital bill or college fees.
