 'Shame Parades' of Hookers Banned in China

China is to end the public shaming of prostitutes by parading them through the streets following controversy.

According to the People's Daily, Ministry of Public Security has asked the police to stop parading suspects in public and has called upon local departments to enforce laws in a "rational, calm and civilized manner," reports Xinhua.

Prostitution is illegal in China and police sometimes used means such as parading prostitutes in public as a deterrent.

Earlier this month, local media in the city of Dongguan in southern China's Guangdong province published pictures of two suspected prostitutes and two patrons who had been detained by police.

The handcuffed girls were shown walking barefoot, handcuffed and tethered by a rope around their waists.
