A South African prostitute known only as "Kylie" has decided she's not going to take her firing lying down. She has gone to court, claiming she was unfairly released from her job at a massage parlor. The problem for Kylie is that prostitution is illegal in South Africa so the judge at the labour appeals court has expressed his doubts about the legality of a person engaged in illegal activity challenging a dismissal. "When dismissed you are made to stop with something criminal... but then you say 'please protect me from someone who is stopping me from doing something criminal' — it doesn't makes sense to me," Judge President Raymond Zondo said.
