Green Party welcome investigation into attacks on sex workers


Reacting to the news of a Garda investigation into attacks on sex workers, Green Party Justice Spokesperson Roderic O’Gorman said:

“I’m pleased to see that the Gardai are investigating the seven targeted attacks that have been committed against sex workers across the country in recent weeks. Too often in recent times, the Gardai have focused their investigations on sex workers themselves, rather than those who prey on them. Sex workers are recognized as a particularly vulnerable group, and this vulnerability has been brought home by this spate of attacks against them.
“It is vital that the Gardai initiate prosecutions against the gang who are targeting both female and male sex workers.”
