This is a small step in the right direction, and we all must keep the pressure on so that all the children, all countries will be protected from evil doers.

It's surely a good start and I would hope it would be Universal!! Stiffer sentences and stiffer enforcement!!

Thank you so much for this post, Charles. It's welcomed after seeing the one about the dog chained to a tree and set on fire. Great news here, tho!

This is a start. I yearn for the time when ritual abuse of children and of those children when they become adults is exposed. Programming of the mind through torture results in dissociation, and ultimately in sexual exploitation of the person for power and financial gains. I hope the committee does not ignore this area. jo
