Australian Conservatives MLC Robert Brokenshire has stated he will not be voting to legalise prostitution, citing concerns that it will simply act as a green light for organised crime.
“If you decriminalise prostitution in South Australia, you give a legal opportunity to organised crime, to bikie gangs and to those that have been making money running the brothels to actually get a green tick that it's okay to do that," he says.
Mr Brokenshire says the Australian Conservatives plan to introduce an alternative bill proposing South Australia follow the Nordic model, which criminalises the buying of sex rather than the selling.
"What we want to do is see an opportunity for women to be helped out of the industry,” he says.
