#DECRIMNI - The first hearing in tweets

Time-delayed “live” coverage

Since live tweeting from Belfast’s Judicial Review Court is not permitted, the below is a time-delayed coverage of the first hearing regarding sex worker activist Laura Lee’s challenge of the “Swedish Model” in N. Ireland, i.e. Clause 15 of the Human Trafficking and Exploitation (Further Provisions and Support for Victims) Bill, which criminalises sex workers’ clients (formely Clause 6 of the bill proposal). The first hearing took place on February 19th. You can contribute to Laura Lee’s legal costs by making a donation on GoFundMe.
