Italian term or phrase: favoreggiamento della prostituzione
the dictionary gives "abetting prostitution" but is there any more commonly used phrase?
natasa
"encouraging prostitution"
Explanation:
is a more general, less legalistic term. You'd expect to see this one in (for example) a newspaper or magazine story, whereas "aiding and abetting" would be likelier to show up in a criminal indictment, law review, bar-association publication, or similar professional document.
