Dear List,

On my return to Hungary I have discovered that because of an automated
filing error in our software set-up it is possible that requests for
information, reports and translated documents have not been correctly
replied to, or not replied to at all.

If you have requested information from us and have not received the
material requests please send us a message with "repeat request" in the
subject line, and ask again for the information you would like. You will
now receive a prompt reply.

If you would like to receive a list of the material we have available
please send us a message with "Materials list" in the subject line.

We would apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Best regards to all

Comment:

The legal aspect is only one dimension of the issue. The law can define
prostitution as work but there are also social and moral dimensions of
prostitution. Within the law, anybody is free to use his/her private
property, including his/her body, as long as it does not violate public
interest, safety, moral and general welfare of other individuals.
Decriminalizing prostitution is not enough.
