Mohamed Mattar, LLB, SJD Biography

Title:
Executive Director of the Protection Project
Position:
Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“Some legislation institutes legalize prostitution, some decriminalize, and some punish the women that are in prostitution. Others punish the customer, and I like that approach. The Swedish Law makes buying sex, not selling sex, a crime. You get up to six months imprisonment for this offense.”
