Complaints sex advertising is going unpunished

LEFT-WING party Izquierda Unida in El Ejido has complained municipal laws which ban placing advertising on cars and which offer sexual services for money, are being flouted. It is two years since the town council approved the laws to prevent antisocial behaviour.

One article says that putting leaflets or similar advertising on car windows or throwing them in the street is banned, and can lead to fines, as can “offering, soliciting, negotiating or accepting paid sexual service”.

However, IU complains that recently, sexist advertising is being placed on cars and left in local streets, in which the services of “the most beautiful girls” are offered “from €30”.

The party has also complained that those who placed leaflets on cars with information on the local Operacion Poniente corruption case have been banned, while the advertisers of prostitution have not.

In a separate report, Almeria has been named one of the Andalucian cities where least sexist advertising is reported. The combined reports of Almeria, Cadiz and Cordoba amount to less than 10 per cent of complaints in Andalucia.
