Harriet Harman urges Arnold Schwarzenneger to ‘terminate’ prostitute website

Author: By David Hughes and Trevor Mason, Press Association

She told the Labour Party Conference that PunterNet was based in California,
where Schwarzenegger is governor, but contained “pages and pages of women
for sale in London”.

The “sinister” website “fuels the demand for prostitutes” and puts women at
risk, she told activists in Brighton.

Ms Harman said: “There is now a website … where pimps put women on sale for
sex and then men who’ve had sex with them put their comments on line.

“It is PunterNet and fuels the demand for prostitutes.

“It is the ultimate commodification of women and puts women at risk. It is
truly degrading.”

It was “a sinister development which we are determined to stop”.

Ms Harman continued: “PunterNet has pages and pages of women for sale in
London. But PunterNet is based in California so I’ve raised it with the US
Ambassador to London and I’ve called on California’s governor Arnie
Schwarzenegger to close it down.

“Surely it can’t be too difficult for The Terminator to terminate PunterNet
and that’s what I’m demanding he does.

“And if he doesn’t, I’ve got a message for Arnie: I’ll be back.”

Ms Harman said the Government was stepping up action to tackle human
trafficking in the run up to London’s 2012 Olympics.

“We’re determined to ensure that, especially in the run-up to the Olympics,
international criminal gangs don’t trick and abduct women from abroad and
sell them for sex.”
