This chapter examines the article in the government decision that lays out the procedures for brothel women to request the tearing up of their papers, which was signed by Resident Superior Rivet on February 3, 1921. According to the article, if prostitutes want to remove their name from the prostitution register, they must prove that they have another reliable means of existence, or must demonstrate that there is an honorable, upstanding person who wants to support them, and that person must have sufficient means to care for her. This means that if a man wants to marry a courtesan, he must prove that he can live a steady life with his wife. The removal of the name will be decided by the responsible authorities after they receive a statement from the police commissioner.
