Customers' responsibility when buying sex

The recent proposal by the Ministry of Justice for increasing the responsibility of the customer paying for sex has been met with mixed reactions. Authorities in general back the proposal and many organisations are even prepared to criminalise paying for sex outright, while several non-governmental organisations are against more stringent anti-prostitution laws.

Under the new proposal, buying sex from a victim of pimping or sex trafficking would become illegal, even if the buyer is unaware of the sex worker's circumstances. A court could sentence a person paying for sex if it considers that there was reason to suspect that pimping or human trafficking was involved.
