China: Harmfully isolated: Criminalizing sex work in Hong Kong (Amnesty International, 2016)


Amnesty International’s report on the human rights of sex workers in Hong Kong, PRC, documents a range of rights violations. Police engage in questionable tactics to arrest sex workers. Transgender sex workers report degrading and humiliating treatment in custody. Laws prohibit sex workers working with others for safety, forcing them to work in isolation. And immigration laws prohibit migrants and people from mainland China engaging in sex work, and making them vulnerable to arrest and deportation.
