Human trafficking charges dropped against London, Ont., escort agency owners
From CBC - February 15, 2018

Human trafficking charges were dropped Wednesday against the owners of a London escort agency whose case is testing the constitutionality of Canada's prostitution laws.

Hamad Anwar and Tiffany Harvey were charged in November 2015 with more than two dozen charges each after their business, Fantasy World Escorts, was shut down by London police.

In court Wednesday, lawyers agreed to withdraw most of those charges, leaving only the ones thatdeal with procuring, advertising and materially benefiting from someone else's sexual services.

That leaves Harvey facing one charge of materially benefiting from the sale of someone's sexual services, and Anwarwith the same charge, as well as an additional charge of procuring and advertising someone else's sexual services.
