Abstract:

On 19 October 2001 the German Bundestag passed the Act Regulating the Legal Situation of Prostitutes (Prostitution Act). The Act entered into force on 1 January 2002. On the occasion of the adoption of the Prostitution Act and by resolution of 19 October 2001, the German Bundestag called on the Federal Government "1. After a period of three years to report on the impact of the new legal situation created by the Act; 2. In consultation with the Länder, to review whether Sections 119, 120 Administrative Offences Act are necessary in light of the fact that prostitution is no longer considered immoral." (cf. Minutes of Bundestag Plenary Proceedings 14/196, p. 19204 C; for text see Bundestag Printed Papers 14/7174 (Recommendation for a Decision), p. 3). As requested, the Federal Government hereby submits its report on the impact of the Prostitution Act. The report also covers item 2. of the Resolution, namely a review, carried out in consultation with the Federal Länder, of whether Sections 119, 120 Administrative Offences Act are still necessary.
