The French Assemblée nationale approved a new law against prostitution and sex trafficking. Pursuant to the new law, the violation of the prohibition of the purchase of sexual acts may assert the customer a fine of 1,500 euros (up to 3,750 euros for a subsequent offense) and an awareness class on the harms of prostitution. The offense of passive soliciting, established in 2003 by the Minister of the Interior at the time, Nicolas Sarkozy, has been abolished. In addition, the text also provides for the creation of a prostitution-exit-‘parcours’ with social measures and a residence permit for six months for foreign prostitutes engaged in this ‘parcours’. A fund will be created for this purpose. The fund should receive the amount of 4.8 million euros per year.
