Justice minister urges Craigslist to stop listing sex services
Description: Justice Minister Rob Nicholson has written Craigslist, appealing to the free online advertiser to remove classifieds for erotic sex services. Nicholson said he is taking aim at Craigslist because the advertiser does not appear to take any precautions to ensure it is not getting into the business of child exploitation. Liu Institute Faculty Fellow, Benjamin Perrin, has called for criminal charges against Craigslist for “aiding and abetting human trafficking and prostitution of minors.” In a recent opinion piece, Perrin asserted that sex traffickers have relied on Craigslist to sell their victims.
