A Utrecht court has given the city council the green light to continue registering prostitutes which it says is part of efforts to crackdown on human trafficking and forced prostitution.
A sex industry boss had gone to court, arguing the ban is hurting his business because women were either leaving the city or shifting to the illegal sector.
The court ruled he had failed to prove his case properly, clearing the way for the council to continue registration.
