Amsterdam Municipality Admits Legalizing Prostitution a Failure

The Mayor of Amsterdam Job Cohen (Labor Party) and Alderman Lodewijk Asscher (Labor Party) admitted at a press conference that the repeal of
the prohibition of brothels has been a failure. It seems that the Municipality has now lost control of the red light district. Businesses which sell sex, drugs and are involved in money laundering, have taken over the area. In addition the neighborhood also attracts drug dealers, addicts and the homeless. The Municipality has announced that it intends to take drastic measures to clean up the neighborhood.
