Ten Cases against Solicitors of Sex to Open in Iceland

By Iceland Review

Ten court cases against alleged solicitors of prostitution will open at Reykjanes District Court on Thursday next week. Some of these cases were filed from the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police to the State Prosecutor this summer, others are older.

Overall, there are 86 alleged solicitors of sexual services from two women. According to Fréttablaðið’s sources, some of the cases against them have been dismissed but it is likely that more than ten cases will end up in court.

In April, a special team within the Reykjavík Metropolitan Police and Suðurnes Police presented the results of many months of investigation into prostitution and human trafficking in Iceland. It primarily focused on prostitution advertised on the internet and in classified ads.

A report from the National Commissioner of the Icelandic Police states that the police haven’t found any proof of human trafficking in Reykjavík.
