UK brothel law blamed for Hong Kong murders

by on February 5, 2009
THE DOUBLING of Hong Kong’s murder rate last year has been blamed in part by the former British colony’s inheritance of UK laws on prostitution.

Five of the city’s 36 murders in 2008  were those of prostitutes – four of them killed over three days last March in their apartments where they are prevented from having co-workers due to inherited UK brothel laws. A Pakistani was charged with three of the killings.

Now a further four prostitutes  have been slain this year and a 24-year-old Chinese man arrested in connection with two of the murders.

Welfare groups have called for repeal of Hong Kong’s UK laws on safety grounds.
