FROM MONDAY, IT will be illegal to pay for the services of a sex worker in Northern Ireland.
Only various aspects of prostitution have been illegal, previously. For example, running a brothel.
The Irish government has confirmed that there’s similar legislation coming in the Republic that willÂ make it illegal to pay for sex.
Sex Workerâ€™s Alliance Ireland are opposed to the plans. They sayÂ it will drive prostitution further underground and make it more dangerous for sex workers.
