Murdered in flat - perpetrator assumed to be client. The Association of Hungarian Sex Workers (SZEXE) on behalf of the Hungarian sex workers community condemns the victim-blaming articles and reports published in the media that followed the death of Nancy, a Hungarian sex worker who was murdered in a flat in Akácfa street in Budapest, Hungary. This kind of materials in the media focused on assumed client of Nancy instead of examining state regulation that coerces sex workers into isolation, exile and personal stigmatization, police violence, as well as discrimination and hatred of Hungarian society against sex workers.

They wept, sang, chanted solidarity slogans and rained curses on the killers of their colleagues. “Any ritual killer, who attempts to take my life will be punished. If he thinks that I am a prostitute and has no worth, I am going to make sure he does not live to tell his own story. I am saying it now and confirming it, that as far as we are concerned...my babes (colleagues) are ready for them. They should come with their charms. We will deal with them. Now, we are potent as a bomb,” Tee-Baby, a friend of the victim, said:

serious head injury caused by blunt force First she asked him for a cigarette, then she convinced him to buy her dinner and a relationship was formed that led to three children and a lot of happy memories.

He told the Liverpool Echo: “She was very attractive, she was 26/27 and I was just hitting 40.

"She conned me into buying her a takeaway meal the first time I ever met her and that was the start of the relationship.

"I met her a few days later and the relationship developed.”

After two-and-a-half years an “excited” Maxine gave birth to twins, with a third daughter following six years later.

David described Maxine as a “kind, caring and loving mum” who “in the good times, lived for her kids.".

"Every penny she had, she wouldn’t care about the phone bill, the gas bill, it all went on the kids - that’s how it was. She was always thinking of her kids.”

He added: “She was their mother, they loved her and when they were all together I don’t know who the biggest kid was - she was crazy, in a good way.

"Anybody who knows her as Maxine will laugh because they know what I’m saying - she was bubbly, loud - possibly the loudest person I ever met in my life.”
