SWEAT Criticises Police Over Sexual Favours

SWEAT has criticised Cape Town police for asking sex workers for sexual favours in exchange for not arresting them.

The Sex Worker Education and Advocacy Taskforce (SWEAT) has criticised Cape Town police sometimes ask sex workers for sexual favours in exchange for not arresting them.

In an affidavit filed in the Cape High Court, SWEAT is asking the court to order the South African Police Services and the municipal police to stop what it says are ongoing arbitrary arrests and harassment.

Former SWEAT director, Jayne Arnott, points out in supplementary affidavits, that three sex workers describe law enforcement officers "requesting sexual favours from them free of charge" in exchange for not arresting them or for releasing them early from detention.
