Will it be possible to regulate prostitution in Colombia?
While Amnesty International calls for the rights of sex workers are guaranteed, Colombia recorded no progress on the issue.
Few days ago delegates from Amnesty International around the world approved a policy to protect the human rights of the sex workers, and proposed the absolute decriminalization of sex work done with consent.
This made the world returned his eyes to one of the oldest trades in the world: prostitution. The debate occurs around the possibility that making laws called “agence escorte Montréal” for the sex trade endanger people and increase trafficking, thus said it the coalition against trafficking in women (CATW, in English).
However, Amnesty International stated that trafficking in persons should be penalized and that this position is explicit in the new policy.
In Colombia, prostitution is not illegal, nor is criminalized, as supported on the T-629 judgment 2010. However, there is a specific legal framework that protects the rights of persons who voluntarily exercise prostitution and regulate the trade.
In 2013 the Senator Armando Benedetti (La U) presented 079 Bill that sought to regulate the exercise of prostitution in Colombia.Project came to first debate and was a plenary Congress, however, the proposal has not had more progress.
At the time the initiative aroused strong criticism. “The nuns believe that I want to be more and whores think that I want them to end up,” said Senator Benedetti.
Positions against the regulation state that it should not be regular but discouraging. “Instead of regulating prostitution, you need to be, it is a demonstration that degrades women and is a source of misery and disease,” said the controversial evangelical pastor Marco Fidel Ramirez, Councillor of Bogotá by option citizen.
However, there are those who are in agreement with that guarantee the rights of those who work as prostitutes. “We believe that we must deal with the situation, conduct studies that measure it and strengthen the movement for the rights of sex workers, to guarantee access to justice, health and the vital minimum”, explains the hope Foundation, which works for the victims of trafficking in persons.
The key points of the Bill 079
1. Affiliation to the General Social security system in health and the guarantee of all rights of the substantive labour code.
2. do not be revictimizadas, or battered verbally or physically by part of their employers, clients, users and other workers.
3. free vaccines against sexually transmitted infections and promotion and disease prevention activities.
4. prostitution in conditions, places, times and areas defined by the land use Plan.
5. customers should treat women with dignity and refrain from hiring people who are being sexually exploited.
Sex workers demonstrated at the time disagree with some points of the law and called for modifications in which authors are working. For example, said: “I don’t need to teach us to use a condom”.
In the world there are four approaches to treat prostitution. The prohibitionist, based on the criminal repression by the State, where the client is the victim and is intended to safeguard the moral; the regulationist, seeking to not be able to combat prostitution, regulate it; the abolitionist, which takes criminal action against pimps and customers, and labor or legalistic approach in which prostitution is valued as a job.
Teacher Franklin Gerly Gil, of the gender School of the National University, explains that in Latin America there is a trend towards the regulationist approach. Considers that the lack of progress in this area is due to “a problem of moralism, because it is a thing that ‘you should not speak ‘”.
That the law is not approved does not mean that everything is allowed in Colombia. The Criminal Code recognizes as crimes sexual exploitation, procuring with minors and the imposition of prostitution by force or threat. The law 1336 of 2009 sees as crime, sexual exploitation and child pornography and sex tourism.
While the State takes measures in the matter, discrimination, violence and the lack of guarantees and opportunities for sex workers continues, in June were brutally killed two sex workers in Bogotá, Luz Marina Agudelo and Melissa Cortes, a fact that the women’s secretariat refused to categorize it as a “feminicide”.
Professor Franklin Gerly explains that not has advanced in the discussion further on prostitution because “people that doesn’t suit them that you regulate, because it benefits them the informality”.
Only in Bogotá there 2.721 sex workers, according to the characterization by the Secretariat for Social integration of the 2009 to 2012, and 3.753 workers in Medellin, Barranquilla, Cali and Bucaramanga, according to the Ministry of health.

Its antecedents date back to nearly the origins of man in society; Likewise in America and specifically in Colombia, the accounting had a birth, transformation and development, before and after their colonization.

HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT OF ACCOUNTING
There are several stories in regards led accounting practice out in ancient times due to their low accuracy focusing on analysis that constitutes the subject of accounting activity which is the keep a testimony of the continuous nature of the economic events in the past, so we have three conditions for the creation of accounting: (1)

Representative of accounting events in ancient times.
During the time of slavery was common property became private property and was in some ways the first Organization of the State. Expired tribes were subjected in quality of slaves, making this one of the most important facts of the accounting, due that the most intelligent slave called GAZETTEER (2) had the mission of accounting for the slaves of the master, as these were considered property.
At this time there was a society that was the symbol of slavery due to the existence of mighty armies that flooded the State of Gold and slaves, “Roman society”; “Where they come economic facts accounting-related since there were various books like”: ADVERSARY “, where the daily income and expensesare recorded. “The CODEX or TUBULAE”, where revenues were placed in the column (Acceptum) and in another column (Expensum) costs. (The CODEX ACCEPTI – ET EXPENSI) which reproduced faithfully the State of the ‘Ark’ box.
In Rome there were many struggles between patrician and plebeian particularly due to debts and creditors (patricians), abuses against borrowers, because of this was the need to implement legislative measures such as the “PAETIELA PAPIRIA” (Rome, 325 BC by Marcus Tullius Cicero year 428);Which was based on the registration of the name of the debtor in the CODEX of the creditor with the consent of the first and the mention of the amount of life to create an obligation in favor of the creditor.
After slavery, appears the feudalism, where the power is not in the number of slaves but on Earth. The Church becomes a predominant sector as the first banking institution, which provided loans and appropriated the land as a punishment for non-payment, today this is the legal collection. This time dominated the Roman accounts, where actually promoted double and also appear auxiliary books with specific provisions such as: (3)
Later in the age of mercantilism, two events marked its development: the growth of the monetary economy and the rise of the nationalist States. During the 16th century, the accounting activity enters a stage of great boom, both in the economic field, and in the professional field. Charles V issued a Real card that is ordered as operations must be registered, and establishes that all must be signed by the accountant and the Treasurer, this is “the first Fundamental Control” in Valladolid.

LUCA PACIOLO, DEVELOPER OF THE DOUBLY
To appear the printing press in Europe, in the second half of the 15th century, they came to light great works of varied topics. In terms of accounting firms could be the first published works were not the first to be written, such is the case of Benedetto Cotrugli Rangeo, native of Dalmatia, author ofDella mercatura et of the merchant perfetto, work that he finished writing the August 25, 1458 and was however not published but until 1573, this littlebook gives instructions to practice trade referring to the double-entry accounting system and use 3 books: Quaderno (greater), Giornale (daily), andMemoriale (draft).

Studying the history, we can see that wasn’t Paciolo who discovered double heading, as several scholars had already developed it before him; However, Friar Luca Paciolo, born in 1445, in the village of San Sepolcro, province of Tuscany; It deserves recognition by the first Edition printed in the subject, because the works produced hundreds of years ago, were all handwritten. The life of this illustrious character, deserves an analysis for the understanding of his work, which opened a new phase in the accounting literature and whose effects persist to the present day. Fray Luca Paciolo was monk of the order of St. Francis of Assisi, in his youth he settled in Venice with a prominent Jewish merchant named Antonio Rompiais, there studied at the school of Domenico Bragadino a “public reader of mathematics” (5), he spent several years of their lives outside Venice, studying the great mathematical theoriesand it is speculated that during that period he began to relate to the accounting When he returned, his famous work Summa de arithmetica, geometry, proportioni et proportionalita (all about arithmetic, geometry, proportions and were), printed in the year 1494.
There are no tests that ensure that Paciolo was the author of the double-entry method , on the contrary, it states that it was the method that was then applied in Venice at that. It is considered that the double-entry method, was based on the Treaty of Cortugli, who is know for studying it 40 years until Paciolo published his work.
The purpose of Paciolo was to design an accounting System to provide timely information in relation to its assets and obligationsto the merchant.Regarding the subject, Paciolo gives an explanation of the inventory saying that it is a list of assets and liabilities held by the owner of the companybefore starting activities, said inventory should be done in a single day; All operation will be registered by its effects of credits and debits ledger (Quaderno) usually wore an index was balanced when pages are depleted, this book was settled by two people, closing balance was the same balance to open a new book, and this process is called “Summa summarium“, its closure was correct if debits and credits were the same the debit operations were known by the preposition “Per” and the “A” credit .
Paciolo died in 1514 after having dedicated his life to mathematics and
Particular trade math. He invented procedures for the addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, and you could even say that division today is an invention of Paciolo and its publications are an important legacy that are preserved as the basis for the current accounting.

ACCOUNTING AND PROFESSION ACCOUNTANT IN COLOMBIA
In pre-Columbian America, where three relatively developed cultures (Azteca in Mexico, Inca in Peru and Chibcha in Colombia), dominated the writingalphabetic was not known. Despite this, the accounting activity was common practice among the aborigines; for example, the Aztecs carried accounts of the taxes collected subject tribes; the Inca they carried their accounts in ties with knots representing figures, and the chibchas, whose trade was done by barter of goods, registered their transactions with colors painted on their costumes.
Stage of the conquest (7)
Unprecedented economic activity began in this region with the arrival of the Spaniards in American territory. The conquistadors obtained Crown multiple concessions, which gave beginning to exploitation not only natural resources but also Aboriginal. Thus, the Spanish manages to impose on these lands, as well as its culture and customs mercantilist, their accounting practices. Announced the consolidation of the American conquest , in 1522, Carlos V, by Royal cédula named Rodrigo de Albornoz as a Royal accountant of these lands, and along with their accreditation gives you very precise instructions on the registry of the transferor.
Stage of the colony “The doubly in America”
Later, in 1591, King Felipe II ordered carry accounts of the Kingdom twice, highlighting in this way the Italian influence on accounting Spanish. The colons in the American territory established a series of institutions of socio-economic character in order to exploit the natives;
For example, la Encomienda (represented in personal Services and products natural obligation on settler), tribute to the encomendero, pensions for individuals, the fifth of the King, the salary for the corregidores and the Mita were important sources of revenue for the Crown.
During the colony, the Church undoubtedly was the most powerful institution in the new Kingdom; it appropriated vast territorial both rural and urban, to change the method of force used by the colonists, teaching and evangelization.

Three courts of audit (Santa Fe, Lima and Mexico) were established in America in 1605, were appointed special in Havana and Caracas counters and management accounting standards were issued. In 1678, Felipe IV determined that actual counters had to submit every two years accounts in terms of “cargo” and “data” (it should be and there be) to the Royal Court of Auditors. This way it was possible to control and registration of the taxes collected and managed by the Crown.
Provided the largest contribution to the development of accounting in America the religious community of the society of Jesus, which introduced for the first time in these lands books of accounting, the concept of inventories, the notion of budgets and other elements developed in Europe that then.Accounting was not exercised as a profession, but by clerics as part of their administrative activities in religious communities.
Stage of La República “Professional accountant”
In Colombia, after independence, continued using for a long time the technical accounting brought by the Spaniards, in accordance with the Ordinances of Bilbao. The emergence of the Republic not brought about profound changes in the socio-economic structures ; the French influence extended beyond the cultural field, falling behind the colonial University , which gave way to the model French emphasis on professionalization.
This trend gave rise to the reform of 1826, inspired by general Santander, and guiding the creation of the University of Gran Colombia with offices in Bogotá, Quito and Caracas.
Current stage “Accounting law”
In 1821, by the law of October 6, is organized the accounts, in order to regulate the functioning of finance accounting Office with five counters under formal appointment. Thirty years later, the Court of accounts by the General Office of accounts, which is set to head an official named counter greater President is replaced. In the year of 1873, is made the tax code . In accordance with the commercial code of 1887 required all retailers carry at least four books: daily, wholesale, inventory and balance-sheet, together with the copying book of letters; the following years lays down rules and procedures for the management of these books. At the beginning of this century and as a result of the development of the commercial, financial and industrial activity of the country, it was regulated, the tax audit and some tax rules were enacted in order to encourage private investment . By that time emerged companiessuch as the Colombian company of tissues and the Colombian company of beer of Medellín; Yarns and fabrics Barranquilla Obregon; Breweries Bavaria and Germania and Cementos Samper in Bogota. Parallel to this development arose the need for training commercial and accounting, and created the school of Commerce of the University of Antioquia in 1901 and the National School of Commerce of Bogotá in 1905. Years later, these examples were followed by other cities in the country, which eventually gave rise to the definitive organization of guilds of counters. In 1923, was issued the 17 law which expanded the National School of trade and his teachings are oriented according to European models . Industrial activity continued its development to promote the creation of joint-stock companies , for which the Government issued the law 58 of 1931, which created the figure of the Prosecutor reviewer.In the article 46 of this law gave recognition to the profession of sworn counter.
With the passing of the years, there were some laws further aimed at the regulation of the accounting profession; for example, the 1935 law 73, related accounting management of public and private enterprises and the exercise of the profession, set regulatory standards for the practice of the profession in the country. The National Institute of public accountants (NCPI), formed by accountants of great career was established in 1951. Four years later, the Colombian Academy of Accountants public graduates (Adeconti) was organized. The law 145 of 1960 definitively regulated the exercise of the profession and set requirements for your practice. In 1961 was issued the Decree 1651, which determined rules and procedures required to practice the profession, take accounting, authorizing financial statements and prepare tax returns. Today principles and accounting standards are described in the Decree 2649 from 1993, waiting for a possible adoption of international standards that repeal not only law but also history.

With about 100 formal powers in the country, the right is the second race with more followers.
Since the founding of the country’s most traditional universities, the law has been between races with greater demand among Colombians, appearing in the first places, year after year, and sharing the stage with other professions such as engineering, business administration, medicine and psychology.
For example, an investigation of the center of studies of Justice of the Americas found that Colombia is in second place in the world with the largest number of Israeli corporate lawyer, 354,45 professionals per 100,000 inhabitants.
The first list, in which there are countries in Europe and America, is Costa Rica with 389,36 legal professionals.
It should be noted that in the study the Nations of America lead the ranking, as the fourth and fifth place, in his order, take them over Brazil and Argentina, and in third place is Italy.
WHY BE LAWYER?
According to Francisco Bernate, Professor of the Faculty of jurisprudence of the University of Rosario, there are three reasons that make people decide to study law.
The first is cultural because, as he says: “believed that lawyers are working very easy and that are usually well paid jobs, which makes it very attractive”.
The second is that it is a career that supports any type of vocational inclination, it is for those who like numbers and reading, as not so much; for analytical people and the practical, i.e., it is an area of knowledge that is not exclusive, and the third reason is that “being a country over judicializado, high-conflict, in which we live every day in the States, supported by legislation, as it develops in a race that gives prestige, of opportunities and access to a myriad of charges”.
For its part, the Dean of the Faculty of law of the University Inca, Luis Eduardo Martínez considers that this is one of the races with larger number of professionals because it is essential for the functioning of the social, political and economic order of the countries.
It also considers that in Colombia the faculties should seek that practitioners who are forming to specialize, inclusive, “since his third year of career,” preparing them according to the needs of your environment, thinking in today’s society and the challenges for the country on all fronts of its development.
Professor Bernate, who notes that in the country there may be, approximately 230,000 qualified lawyers, holds that we must exercise consciousness in the quality of this high number of lawyers, in part, “by the proliferation of schools that do not meet the requirements for the appropriate exercise of the legal profession”.
For this reason, the call is to adjust the curricula with specializations such as commercial, environmental law, human rights and other disciplines that are in tune with the social and economic needs of the country.
LAWYERS REQUIRE CONSTANT TRAINING
It must be said that the increase in the supply of legal education in the country, which keeps growing each year is due. In part, to the expansion of the private offering in universities and the rise of specializations that, to meet the demand, they also strengthen it.
In addition, having a graduate is now an almost indispensable requirement to access better jobs, with an interesting remuneration.
Equally, in search of a higher professional ladder, followed by a master’s degree, and even a doctorate in law, which print you categorization and a global space to the profession, especially in a country in economic development and on their way to the increase of their competitiveness.
