    Again no bribe was paid or there was no free service for the police. This antiquated and obsolete Brothel Ordinance must finally be abolished. With the services of these women, criminal pimps and policemen make a fortune.

    They are selling their body , because of poverty . So before punishing them this point also will be considered .

    Victimsless "crimes" hurting no one. Utter waste of law enforcement time and the time of the Courts. Its better for the Police to go after real criminals than waste their time with this type of action.

    Legalize it already, who are we trying to kid? The trade will never die out and legalizing will help prevent disease.

    Legalise this business. Maintain some standard. Charge a fee like they do for any registered medical service, education service. " registered " not quacks like most medical centres or tutories. Matter solved.

    "Six women arrested"How many arrested for the Central Bank robbery?

    Buddhi Perera Sunday, 01 April 2018 10:04 PM

    I always ask this question - What about their clients?. They are the ones who should be punished because they are the ones who asked for this service.

    Let those poor girls go without divulging their names and addresses. Send the manager to jail.

    Sensible Sunday, 01 April 2018 11:05 PM

    Vote for the party next time that promises legalising this trade going even before the birth of Jesus Christ. Advanced countries like New Zealand, Holland have legalised.

    Where ever there is a demand. There will always be a supply chain. Basic business principles what ?

    CITIZEN Tuesday, 03 April 2018 10:26 AM

    Why not we legalise this "oldest profession" and bring it under FDIP (Foreign Direct Investment Project) of the BOI and invite investors? This, no doubt, will bring in much needed foreign exchange in a very big way, which can help vexed Finance Ministers to bridge the budgetary gap in a big way!!!
