‘I was held at gunpoint to do porn’ – PNG/Sex Trade

20/2/08

A former school girl who starred in one of the pornographic videos with the Australian runaway porn maker Russell Lorback has confessed that she was held at gunpoint and threatened that she’d be killed if she didn’t agree to make the porn movie with him (Lorback). The woman who requested anonymity told Dr Marat’s independent investigation team that Lorback used another girl to lure her to his house where he held her against her will at gunpoint and gave her three options whether to die, strip for him while he took pictures or have sex with him while he took pictures.

Parkop calls for prostitution to be legalised
Harlyne Joku; 20/2/08
National Capital District Governor Powes Parkop yesterday called for prostitution to be decriminalised so it can be regulated. Mr Parkop said on the FM100 Talk back show yesterday that despite the fact that prostitution was illegal, it is rife in Port Moresby city and happening everyday. He said prostitution must be “decriminalised and regulated”. “If it is decriminalised, it is neither legal nor illegal therefore it can be regulated,” he said. Mr Parkop further disagreed with Justice Minister Dr Allan Marat’s calls for a ban on nightclubs.
