Sex industry boss sells red light property

Amsterdam sex industry magnate Charles Geerts is to sell his red light district property to housing corporation Het Oosten in a deal worth some €25m.

The agreement means 51 red light windows, around one-fifth of the total, will close. The city council has refused to give Geerts a brothel licence.
