Egypt: Law No. 10/1961, on the Combating of Prostitution
In 1959 Egypt (The United Arab Republic then) joined the Convention for the Suppression of the Traffic in Persons and of the Exploitation of the Prostitution of Others and for that the government started working on issuing a new law to meet the new requirements of that convention and in 1961 a final bill was passed, making it the law Nr. 10/1961 on the Combating of Prostitution. This law is still in effect to this day in both of Syria and Egypt.
