Council may run its own brothels

Amsterdam’s Centrum borough council is considering running a number of red light district windows itself and renting them to independent prostitutes, news agency ANP reported.

‘We want good, bona fide prostitutes in the area,’ GroenLinks councillor Bob van Schijndel said.

An investigation into the setting up of council-run brothels should be completed within one month, Van Schijndel said.
