MEPs have backed a report by British centre-left MEP Mary Honeyball saying EU countries should legalise prostitution, but criminalise clients who buy sex. They backed the report, which puts political pressure on EU capitals to consider the so-called Nordic model on prostitution, by 343 votes against 139.
