    Actually, yes, if the problem is expats and sex tourists. Nobody wants to end up like Cuba Dave, and a few choice arrests and closings will generally get the point across.

    Can't really be mad at the locals. If I had a bordello operating in my neighborhood that drew in some fairly nasty types (particularly those most likely to meet Chris Hansen, and those who think it's ok to film naked women on the street because they can), I'd have a problem with it, too.

    And that reason was, drum roll please:

    Pimping.

    That has always been illegal in the DR . Their charging a percentage on the hookers was what did it.

    the oldest profession in THE WORLD and a third world country wants to shut it down ? observing the happenings in the DR is better than watching the DNC and RNC conventions.

    The DR, like Thailand, if you had not noticed, has an international reputation for prostitutes. The DR government does not like this reputation. That is why the DR government, the Attorney General Brito and other agencies, is trying to minimize this reputation.
    You may have noticed certain activities in Santo Domingo and Sosua as well with the same thrust of trying to remove prostitution from public view.

    why not follow the example of Costa Rica (my new favorite place). prostitution is legal but it's reserved for certain places like bars and hotels. everybody's happy. street walkers are immediately arrested.

    That would make too much sense, and as you can see from the prev responses The Jimmy Swaggarts of Sosua , they prefer the Govt target the Girls and even arrest the Johns ( who are committing NO crime btw ,under current law)
    than for the govt to focus on their REAL Problems like Corruption, Major Narcotics trafficking , Cold Blooded Murder of Innocent Expats in their own homes, Gun Point Armed Robbery, and other Very Violent Crimes.. because that would take actual EFFORT.
    Declaring Sosua a Free and clear of Prostitutes Zone ( a victimless crime) seems to somehow make them " Feel" better, and as we all know FEELINGS are a Lot more Important than Actual Accomplishments and Improvements..
