The recent publicity surrounding the release of the video and report on webcam child sex abuse by Dutch children’s rights organisation Terre des Hommes (translated as Earth for Mankind, from Antoine de Saint Exupery’s book, better known as author of The Little Prince) illustrates how we as a society can be taken aback by the uses that digital technology can be put to and the endless resourcefulness of those determined to use it for their own nefarious purposes.
Terre des Hommes have worked in the field of children’s rights for well over 45 years.
Terre des Hommes Netherlands has now handed over to police the identities of those who were willing to pay children in developing countries for online sex, a growing phenomenon, it said.The identities of 1,000 of these alleged predators were submitted to Interpol.“The internet is free, but not lawless,” says Hans Guyt, director of campaigns at Terre des Hommes Netherlands. We want governments to adopt proactive investigation policies that give law enforcement agencies the mandate to actively patrol public Internet hotspots where this child abuse is taking place every day.However, both child prostitution and child sex tourism are mostly centred in urban environments and this is where webcam child sex tourism (WCST) abuse differs greatly in it’s scope.Any person with an internet connection and webcam can theoretically set up a brothel in their own house or at another location.The child predators doing this now feel that the law doesn’t apply to them,” he adds.
