China: Harmfully isolated: Criminalizing sex work in Hong Kong
Police in Hong Kong engage in questionable tactics to arrest sex workers, including the receipt of sexual services as an investigatory technique; entrapment; and obtaining confessions through coercion or deception. Transgender sex workers report degrading and humiliating treatment in custody. Laws in Hong Kong force sex workers to work in isolation, prohibiting them from working with others for their own safety. In addition, immigration laws prohibit migrants and people from mainland China engaging in sex work, making them vulnerable to arrest and deportation. In this report, Amnesty International brings together testimony from sex workers and public officials.
