Constitutional Court has admitted the claim on the abolition of administrative responsibility for the prostitution for consideration.
A sex worker applied to the court, whose personal information is classified.
The plaintiff demands the abolition of administrative responsibility for prostitution. According to the citizen, the norm unjustifiably restricts the right to free development of the one’s personality and is unconstitutional.
Base on the current edition of the Code of Administrative Offences of Georgia, prostitution is an administrative offence, which shall carry a warning or a fine of up to one half of the minimum wage. The same act committed within one year after the imposition of an administrative penalty – shall carry a fine from one half to one minimum wage.
According to media reports, sex workers are frequently fined with GEL 20.
