i am currently about to uptdate the report by the boltzmann institute of
rights on trafficking in women in austria and international standards.
therefore i urgently need some additional information on the regulation
of prostitution in the netherlands and also on the humanitarian
residence permit for trafficked persons.
i hope that someone can answer my following 3 questions:
1) when were brothels legalised in nl? (in bindman/doezema, redefining
prostitution, 1997, i read about relevant legal amendments in 1996, on
the stop trafficking list i currently read about a new law entering into
force on 1 october 2000 legalising prostitution and brothels. this
confuses me a bit.)
2)what about possibilities of migrant women to work as prostitutes in
nl? in "dutch to bar non-european prostitutes" (stop trafficking,
december 1999) the author wrote about a new law (or only a proposal?)
that would prohibit sex-work by non-european citizens, but according to
other sources, this was not legal before, either (bindman/doezema;
marijan wijers, stop trafficking, november 1999). so what is the legal
situation is like now and when has it been amended?
3) concerning the legislation on trafficking: when was the temporary
residence permit introduced? have there been some recent legal
amendments or is the information that we have (3 months time to think
over legal proceedings against the trafficker, then residence permit
during criminal procedure, afterwards possibility to obtain permanent
residence permit) still valid? is there also a possibility of social
insurance or access to the labour market ?
thank you very much in advance & best regards
