Inquiry report finds gaps in UK legal system are allowing known offenders to sexually abuse children abroad

09 January 2020 – IICSA

The Inquiry has published its report on the protection of children outside the UK, concentrating on the legal measures designed to prevent British child sex abusers from offending overseas.

The report observes that offenders from England and Wales are travelling to perpetrate extensive abuse of children across the world, including in eastern Asia and Africa.

It determines that civil orders are not being used effectively to stop offenders visiting other countries where poverty and corruption have left children vulnerable.
