Taiwan county turns off red light – shuts last legal brothel

Authorities in central Taiwan have turned off the red light at the county’s last legal brothel after the death of its pimp aged 87. Ai-Le was the last legal brothel in Nantou county in central Taiwan, and police revoked its permit because the 48-year-old business could not be transferred.

Prostitution has been illegal in Taiwan since 1997, and licensing of new brothels stopped in 1974, but isolated illegal brothels can be found all over the island. Brothels licensed prior to 1974 were allowed to keep operating.

The closure effectively leaves Ai-Le’s two prostitutes, aged 40 and 50, jobless.

Hookers that old should be working in Florida, anyway.
