2000 - Bangladesh High Court Rules in Favour of Evicted Sex Workers

In 1999, police evicted Bangladeshi sex workers in Tanbazar and Nimtali from their workplaces and confined them in a centre for homeless people ... the Bangladesh High Court ruled that the sex workers were deprived of their livelihood by being evicted from their brothels, and that this amounted to a deprivation of the right to life.
