I am talking about people who *CLAIM* to be AGS "confiscating" cash - and I have an idea that is only allowed under the law:Leandrai when you say AGS is taking their cash, do you mean the confiscations allowed under the existing law, or are you talking about blackmail?
- If they give a receipt
- If they are real guards
But with the pillorying terror tactics used by Ruhama in the press there is very little to stop anyone claiming to be a Guard and terrorising sex workers or clients into handing over money...the anti client hate campaign is a gift to gurriers.
Incidentally, not sure how many people realise this but the only Gardai available to deal with sex worker's problems are the same squad that raid and arrest them.
Let that sink in.
So, imagine you have just been raided by 2 men and a women who claim to be guards and seem pretty convincing despite never actually showing clear ID and have seized €136,5 the macbook you got for Christmas, the gold pendant your Mam and Dad gave you for your 21st and that funny old ring with the big white stone your Gran left you and an Iphone 5 that (thank heavens) you use for travelling to avoid light fingers in transit...
Are you, seriously, going to be able to make yourself go down to the nearest pub (phone is gone, remember) and call the Gardai knowing it will be passed straight to the same guards who's job it is to raid you and arrest your clients?
I don't think so.
