Oslo Police Increases Fine for Buying Sex

Since the first day of the ban on buying sex, Oslo police captured 100 men for the purchase of sexual services. Now mitigate rate increases to 25 000 kroner
Police in Oslo had an overall impression that the size of the fines has not worked sufficiently preventively. The Chief of Police has with immediate effect, decided to increase the penalty for the purchase of sexual services to 25 000 kroner – that’s close to triple.
– In line with the intentions behind the new law, we want that the buying of sex market in Oslo should not appear as attractive for the ones who want to exploit women. Now everyone knows that a law was introduced against buying sex. We emphasize, therefore, significantly to enhance the effect of the efforts that the police do in this area, says Deputy Police Chief Hans Halvorsen of the Oslo police.
