EU parliament voted a new Eu Directive against child porn. Inroducing grooming and sex tourism criminal offences

In Strasbourg  on October 27, 2011, the European Parliament voted through a new EU directive to remove child porn websites.

The new provisions include better protection measures such as the removal of child porn websites; more effective prosecution of criminals; and special support for victims.  The key elements in the fight against child abuse are the harmonisation of criminal offences and penalties, and better preventive measures.

This directive also introduces important new measures against child pornography and abuse, for example to prevent online grooming and child sex tourism. It is now up to each individual  Member State, including Ireland, to transpose and implement the rules that have been adopted today as effectively and quickly as possible, and fully demonstrate their commitment to protecting children from abuse.
