'Prostitution exists and will continue to exist,' Senator Rojkés
National senator Beatriz Rojkés, wife of Tucumán governor José Alperovich, said today that she was “shocked” and “surprised” by the decision of a Tucumán court to free all of the defendants in the Marita Verón disappearance case and that prostitution “exists and will continue to exist.”
“I am completely overwhelmed. I have accompanied Susana Trimarco a lot throughout this process.
"She’s a woman of infinite courage who has fought totally alone,” Rojkés said.
Rojkés, the current president of the Argentine senate spoke today in an interview with a local radio station where she underlined the problem of prostitution in the country.
“It is a reality that exists and that will continue to exist.
“It begins in apartments and ends in brothels. That’s the way it is here and everywhere,” Rojkés said.
“The president ordered that advertising for it stop in newspapers, but other kinds of advertising appear in their place,” she said.
Regarding the court’s decision yesterday, she remarked that it was linked with “poor investigating.”
“There has to be someone responsible working on the inside,” the national senator furthered.
