  • [01] CYPRUS - CONVENTION - COUNCIL OF EUROPE

    The Republic of Cyprus has signed the Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Abuse. The Convention was signed yesterday by 23 Council of Europe member states, including Austria, Greece, Turkey, Romania, Serbia, Moldova, Bulgaria and Poland.

    The Convention represents a major step in the prevention of sexual offences against children, the prosecution of perpetrators and the protection of victims, Maud de Boer-Buquicchio, Deputy Secretary General of the Council of Europe, said. According to a press release by the CoE, for the first time, an international treaty criminalises sexual abuse, an offence which is usually carried out by people known to the victims - sometimes within the family - and is one of the most damaging for children.

    The convention will enter into force once it has been ratified by five states. Preventive measures outlined in the convention include the screening, recruitment and training of people working in contact with children, making children aware of the risks and teaching them to protect themselves, as well as monitoring measures for offenders and potential offenders.
