Calvia.—It has not been a great start to the season in Calvia with news of the three balcony deaths and the recent crackdown on prostitutes in the main resorts making front page news at home and abroad.

However, as the Bulletin reported yesterday, hoteliers are drawing up a code of conduct to try and reduce the number of accidents while the Association of Businesses and Tourism Services (ACOTUR) yesterday called for the police to continue with their drive to eradicate street prostitution from the resorts.

Last weekend, the police carried out the first major anti-prostitution operation of the season and ACOTUR want the police to carry out similar checks and controls every weekend throughout the summer season in order to keep the prostitutes off the streets and away from holiday makers.

ACOTUR said that such action is vital if Calvia wants to continue being considered one of the most attractive and popular destination in the Mediterranean. The association said it is prepared to cooperate with other organisations in order to bring an end to damage being done to Calvia's image by the prostitutes preying on tourists.
