Latest Amnesty’s International decision produced controversial opinions from the part of human rights activists


It will ask governments around the world to accept its point of view. However, after this decision, reactions were different. The U.S.-based Coalition Against Trafficking in Women, as example,  have argued that while it agrees with Amnesty that those who are prostituted should not be criminalized, full de-criminalization would make pimps “businesspeople” who could sell the vulnerable with impunity. “Amnesty has lost its credibility, but unfortunately it is not the, but the most vulnerable women and girls, who will have to pay the highest price for today’s decision by Amnesty International,” is the opinion of The Women Front in Sweden (Kvinnofronten). Many others human rights activists expressed reserve regarding the Amnesty’s decision.
