Icelandic Police Investigate 86 Cases of Prostitution

A special investigation into prostitution and human trafficking in Southwest Iceland launched by police in September last year proved more extensive than expected. The cases of 86 individuals, being investigated for soliciting prostitution, have been sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions, which will decide whether to further pursue the cases, ruv.is reports.

Soliciting sexual services carries a jail sentence of up to one year.
