Hungary to issue permits for prostitutes

September 25, 2007

Hungary’s move allows sex workers to be part of legal economy

The permits allow prostitutes to give receipts to customers and become part of the legal economy by paying taxes and making social security contributions, said Agnes Foldi, head of the Hungarian Prostitutes’ Interest Protection Association.

“From now on, no one will be able to ask me where I got the money to buy my house or my car,” said Rebeka, who would not give her last name. “Now we are also part of a taxpaying group and we too are making a contribution to society.”
