Barcelona tightens rules against prostitution

Barcelona is tightening up on prostitution by banning soliciting on the streets.

From the first of August soliciting in public will be banned and sex workers who refuse to move will be fined €750, or up to €3,000 if sex is performed in the open. Under the new regulations fines may be imposed on the spot.

Spain’s government is also trying to crack down on prostitution throughout the country, and the Catalonia regional government has imposed new measures to create special records not only for offending sex workers but also for their partners.
