    https://www.ecpat.org.uk/stop-the-sexual-abuse-of-children-in-tourism

    “In many tourist destinations worldwide, children are routinely subjected to horrific sexual abuse, violence and degradation at the hands of unscrupulous traffickers and offenders. Convicted sex offenders, have travelled to countries such as Kenya, India, Cambodia and the Philippines to sexually abuse children, avoiding prosecution by authorities and leaving victims alone without the vital protection and support they need. This has to stop.”

    There must be ZERO TOLERANCE. Protecting minors and children from prostitution is very important to most travellers. The protection of children and minors from sexual exploitation must be a social responsibility priority and this is an important action that must be undertaken by hotels through partnerships with NGOs.

    Convicted Paedophiles Face Travel Ban in ‘World First’ Crackdown on Child Sex Tourism

    “The Australian Government announced on May 30 it will be introducing a travel ban for child sex offenders, marking a “world first” bid to prevent child sex tourism abroad. Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said that in 2016 almost 800 convicted child-sex offenders had travelled overseas. At least half of them were determined by authorities to be of medium-high risk of re-offending and failed to notify police of their travel intentions. Almost 40 per cent of the travellers were convicted of sex offences against children under the age of 13 and half of them travelled to south-east Asia where “local laws” do not protect children from foreign predators.”

    More countries around the world should follow this prevention example.

    I certainly wouldn’t be against putting known pedophiles on travel ban lists. I don’t see any good that can come from allowing them to travel to less developed nations barring familiar emergencies maybe.

    This is very sad. Children are being subject to tremendous torture and violence. This must be stopped and initiatives should be taken on priority to curb these practices taking place anywhere in the world.
