LIPPO CIKARANG - Prostitutes in the regency of Blitar don't have to worry any longer now the regional government has decided that not all prostitution areas in the district have to be closed down during the Ramadan this year. One of the three locations will stay open this year, so people that serve customers can go to that one place in the district of Selorejo. The red light areas in Talun and Ponggok will be closed however.
The regent of Blitar, Herry Noegroho, has told that he did do everything he could to take care of the problem. The location is the most remote in the regency and is on the border with the Malang regency. All working girls have to be registered as well. The regent informed that this was the best solution of this problem in the regency of Blitar for now.
The decision will be formalized and will eventually lead to a regional regulation about the location of the red light district. Eventually all those areas should be closed down. The prostitutes however are fiercely against closing all red light districts in the future. It would become more difficult and dangerous for them to work so they hoped they could stay in one location. There was no reaction from the customers however.
