Refuse all Romanian girls

Lately a report came out:

It is called 'Weg achter het raam?' ['Gone behind the window?'] by the Bureau Beke (written by Anton van Wijk, Ilse van Leiden en Henk Ferwerda, 2009).

It is about the effect on prostitutes after the closure of several window brothels in Amsterdam. They conclude that because the supply of windows has gone down, the window rents have gone up. The prostitutes now have to pay more to get behind a window. But that is not so interesting in my opinion; if you want to solve this problem, simply help some prostitutes out (especially the forced prostitutes of whom there are rumoured to be many in this type of prostitution), then the demand of prostitutes for windows also goes down. And also; what they say cannot be true because from what I know the windows are heavily under-occupied. But perhaps the situation has recently changed.

But there's something else more interesting in the report. Lately, the municipality of Amsterdam wanted to close down brothels in the Singel area (Korte Korsjespoortsteeg and the Oude Nieuwstraat). It refrained from doing so because there are supposedly much fewer forced prostitutes in that area. I always wondered what is the secret behind this? The report mentions a Romanian girl (page 20) who tried to work in this area, but who was refused because (translated):
"At first the brothel owner finds it okay but as soon as I mention that I am Romanian, the doors gets closed. Bulgarian and Romanian Girls are refused because the brothel owners assume that we all bring problems with us and all are in the hands of loverboys and pimps, that stings us, we feel stigmatized by that."

Very interesting. I always wondered what I would do if I were a brothel owner. In my opinion, from what I know today, it is nearly impossible to seperate the forced from the voluntary prostitutes. They are so good at hiding their situation. And what indeed about just refusing whole groups of prostitutes? No Africans, no Eastern Europeans, no young women (younger than 30), etc ....... Turns out that some brothel owners are indeed doing just that. It is not waterproof however.

Romania is a mafia state with not working administration governed by organized crime.

Human trafficking in Romania is a state policy and a modern retail which feed corruption and organized crime. Organized crime is constantly looking for legitimate business that could be used as a cover.Behind such companies, actually hiding network specializing in recruitment of girls who end up prostitute.
These companies are used as a mask, to support illegal activities, to wash the money, but also because leaders mobs to be seen as successful entrepreneurs.
Besides these companies, strongly related with them, in the town of Curtea de Arges (Romania) exist more mafia groups(indestructible mafia groups) which with the complicity of local taxi drivers, recruit, transport, and place girls to practice prostitution, girls which later are trafficked external.
According to data held by the Italian authorities in Roma: 85% of prostitutes in Rome are romanian woman. In Milano: eight of ten prostitutes which practice “job” in Milano are romanian woman including Ioana Visan, Berlusconi's hooker from Curtea de Arges (Curtea de Arges, pimps factory from Romania, manager: local corrupt police ) arrived in Italy by prostitution networks from Curtea de Arges
Cars of the pimps from Curtea de Arges who recruit girls from prostitution and customers for them: B-14-WXH (prostitute-pimp who was married with Caroli Pici, said Loti, a member of a criminal gang George Nan by world involved in human trafficking, kidnappings, usury and murders, thefts from apartments, and car thefts, and that on the June 20, 2004 abducted and kidnapped Anna Maria Valdata, the italian wife of a tycoon for which demanded a ransom of 1 million euros ) and B-34-TND (pimp - one of the mob leaders from Curtea de Arges)
About the pimp Caroli Pici, nick Loti and local corrupt police: Denmark, Romania is the country with the most prostitutes and according to Europol, Eurojust, The Times, CNN, the first exporter of prostitution in Europe is Romania.
