Clients Also To Get Stung Under New Law


Clients of prostitutes are set to be stung under the Croatian government’s new proposed legislation on offences against public order and peace. Under the proposed law, offering or requesting sexual favours will incur a fine between 150-550 euros, whilst performing a sexual act with a prostitute will carry a 550-1300 euro fine, reports website Tportal.

Under current law, which was last amended in 1994, prostitutes are the only ones punishable, whilst the users of sexual services are not sanctioned.

In the period from 2002 to 2011 there have been a total of 319,476 offences against public order and peace committed in Croatia, an average of 31,948 offenses a year. The most common offenses committed were fighting in a public place, abuse and insulting state authorities and officials.
