Snorri Birgisson, police officer of the Reykjavik Metropolitan Police told that much more prostitution incidents have occured in the last 18 months.
“We can certainly say there has been an increase in prostitution here in Iceland. They are mostly foreign women and trans women that come here in the purpose of selling their services.”
According to him many prostitution apartments exist in the city, and probably all of them are connected to crime syndicates.
He also said that finding out if a prostitute is forced or simply works by her own decision is a hard and complicated work. The sexual services of the prostitutes are advertised on foreign escort sites and in closed Facebook groups.
