EP cracks down on pedophilia, child porn

'Investigate, prosecute, protect' says resolution

(ANSA) - Strasbourg, March 11 - The European Parliament on Wednesday approved a resolution cracking down on child sexual abuse and online child porn.
    The resolution calls for "further efforts" to investigate online child sexual abuse, prosecute offenders, protect child victims and remove illegal online content. The ongoing EU data protection reform also includes changes to better protect the rights of children online, MEPs stressed.
    More than 80 % of the victims are under 10 years old.
    The resolution was approved by 606 votes to 4 with 67 abstentions.
