Mexico Reports Increase in Child Sexual Abuse

Mexico, (Prensa Latina) Child sexual abuse currently has a tendency to increase, according to the research ''Diagnosis of the situation of child sexual abuse in a context of violence against children in Mexico.''

According to the research, the possibility of a girl being hospitalized for sexual abuse is seven times greater than that of a boy, in addition to the fact that 60 per cent of sexual crimes are committed at the victim's home and four out of 10 are under the age of 15.

In its report, the Early Institute organization points out that the behavior of three years indicates that the sexual crime most frequently reported was sexual abuse.

It reported that in 2015 there was a rate of 9.8 crimes of sexual abuse per 100,000 inhabitants; 12.2 in 2016 and 12.8 in 2017.

During 2015, out of 1,750,790 cases of hospitalization of people under 18 years of age, 309 were related to child sexual abuse, of which 87.7 percent were girls.

I'm sure, the vast majority of Mexican girls do not bother to go to the hospital after being raped.

The Number of Registered Sex Offenders living in Cambridgeshire has doubled

By Claire Miller, Anna Savva, Cambridgeshire Live

The number of registered sex offenders living in Cambridgeshire has nearly doubled in 10 years, according to the latest Ministry of Justice figures.

In total there were 838 registered sex offenders living in the Cambridgeshire police force area at the end of March 2018. This is the equivalent of one sex offender for every 881 people aged 10 and over.

Sex offenders in England are required to notify the police of certain details, with further notification required if any of those details change.

The figures for Cambridgeshire are similar to those across England and Wales, which has one sex offender for every 878 people.

The number of sex offenders in Cambridgeshire has risen by 5 per cent compared to March 2017.

It is also 54 per cent higher than at the end of 2010/11 when there were 545 registered sex offenders living in the county. Police force level figures first started being published at this time.

In 2017/18, one sex offender being monitored in Cambridgeshire was charged with a serious further offence, and none were convicted.

As well as this, six serious sex offenders were returned to prison for breaching their licence conditions.

Last year, 35 sex offenders in Cambridgeshire were also cautioned or convicted of a breach of notification requirements.

More restrictive orders can also be imposed on sex offenders, such as Sexual Harm Prevention Orders (SHPOs) and previously Sexual Offences Prevention Orders (SOPOs), or notification orders.

There were 64 SHPOs and SOPOs imposed in our area in 2017/18, and one notification order. However, one offender breached their SOPO last year.

A legal challenge in 2010 also means offenders can apply for a review of lifetime notification requirements, after at least 15 years for adults and eight years for juveniles.

A total of two offenders in the area had these requirements revoked in 2017/18.

The Ministry of Justice have put in place Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) to monitor offenders and prevent further offences.

It requires offenders to report to the police within three days of conviction or release from custody, imprisonment or service detention to provide personal details, such as their home address.

MAPPA brings together the police, probation and prison services, as the responsible authority, working with other organisations such as social services, health trusts and local authorities.

Offenders eligible for MAPPA are identified and information is gathered and shared about them across relevant agencies.

The nature and level of the risk of harm they pose is assessed and a coordinated risk management plan is implemented to protect the public.

If you are concerned about who may be living in your area, go to your nearest police station and ask for a Child Sex Offenders Disclosure Scheme Form or Form 284.

The scheme will allow you to ask police if someone who may be in contact with a child has a record of these offences and could potentially be at risk of causing harm.

Police will then confidentially reveal the details to you if it is deemed in the child's interests.

Elsewhere in the country

Across England and Wales, there were 58,637 registered sex offenders being monitored by police at March 31, 2018.

This was a 6 per cent rise compared to 55,236 offenders being managed in March 2017.

The number of registered sex offenders has risen by 87 per cent over the past 10 years, from 31,392 in 2006/07.

The increase in the number of sex offenders is influenced by sentencing trends, in which the number of people convicted of sexual offences is increasing.

Additionally, many sexual offenders are required to register for long periods of time, with some registering for life.

This has a cumulative effect on the total number of offenders required to register at any one time.

There is also the fact that British judges are loath to sentence a man to prison for child pornography. So, it's either the jails swell to absurd levels or the number of RSOs in society increases. The former is frightfully expensive and does little to improve a man's behaviour, while the latter gives him a better chance of getting help but puts children at increased risk. Children have no voice in society, especially sexually abused children so it was an easy decision for the government.

A spokesman for child welfare charity, NSPCC , said: “As the number of sex offenders being monitored grows it’s important to understand how these arrangements will continue to reduce the risk of reoffending.

“Just this week a Home Affairs Select Committee report warned of forces struggling to cope with the huge pressures placed on their resources.

“With more offenders breaching their orders, it’s vital police are given all the tools they need to both effectively monitor child sex offenders in the community and combat the increasing threat posed by complex online abuse.”

Sextortion scheme targets minors through popular online game Fortnite in Quebec

Police urge parents to talk online privacy with their kids
after 4 cases of sextortion reported

"Kids are in absolute crisis"

Police in the Montreal-area are warning parents about online predators using the popular video game Fortnite to lure minors into a sextortion scheme.

Four cases have been reported in the past few weeks, according to police.

In three of those cases, minors were threatened, and in one, the victim sent personal photos to the cyber-predator.

Sgt. Jean-Luc Tremblay with the Richelieu Saint-Laurent police said the predator, or predators, tried to infiltrate groups of friends by offering them a chance to advance their game in exchange for providing revealing photos.

Those messages happen over the social media platform Instagram.

Then the predator threatened to share the images unless the teen sent even more intimate material.

Fortnite has become the most popular game of 2018, thanks to its surreal mix of first-person shooter action and dance moves.

Police are working with school boards in the area to disseminate information about the sextortion.

"[Police] communicated with us asking us to transmit a communiqué to inform parents and help them," said Lynne Arcand, an administrator with the Commission Scolaire des Patriotes, a French-language school board representing more than 30,000 students on Montreal's South Shore.

Arcand added that the school board regularly works to build awareness about social media safety.

"Our role is education for the kids. Adopting good behaviours on social media. Not to give up their passwords. To be vigilant with whom they are chatting," she said.

Student Guillaume Lelièvre said he doesn't play Fortnite but believes "a lot of people would be taken in by this."

A national problem

The Canadian Centre for Child Protection, a national organization based in Winnipeg, works to prevent the online exploitation of children and says it receives about half a dozen reports to its national tipline about similar cases to what is being reported in Quebec.

"[Kids] are in absolute crisis because they've either shared a sexual image and they're being extorted for more or they've paid money, so they're desperate for solutions," said Signy Arnason, the associated executive director of the centre.

She said the minors think they're connecting with a friend or peer, and end up sending something because they don't realize they are messaging with an adult.

"And then they find out that it's more nefarious and then the blackmailing starts," she said.

Arnason and police are encouraging parents to have conversations with their kids about the scam.

"They're all vulnerable as soon as they're online," she said.

Guam’s Catholic Church is Filing for Bankruptcy Due to Child Sex Abuse Cases

The Vatican’s outpost in Guam is in the poor house after being crushed under the weight of an overwhelming number of child sex abuse cases.

Yes, Guam’s Catholic Church — the entire thing — will declare bankruptcy. Not just because they had to but because there was also a strategic element to it. By doing so, the institution will be able to avoid trials for dozens of lawsuits regarding inappropriate sexual contact between priests and kids.

Archbishop Michael Byrnes announced Wednesday that mediation efforts that began in September led the church to bankruptcy.

“This path will bring the greatest measure of justice to the greatest number of victims,” Byrnes said. “That’s the heart of what we’re doing.”

Byrnes said the bankruptcy will provide “finality for victim survivors that they’ve been heard and understood.”

Attorney Leander James, who is working with alleged victims in Guam, said in a statement the move will help resolve current lawsuits from more than 180 claims of abuse through settlements.

We welcome the announcement,” James said in a statement. “Bankruptcy provides the only realistic path to settlement of pending and future claims.”

This is actually a pretty interesting case. The number and scope of lawsuits, as well as the threat of future ones, compelled the entire Church to declare bankruptcy. It’s not something they would do lightly, and it will ensure that a huge group of victims gets paid. It also doesn’t necessarily mean the Church will shut down.

According to attorneys for the alleged victims, bankruptcy will encourage others to submit their complaints by implementing a filing deadline.

“This bankruptcy filing will automatically stop any further action in the lawsuits that have been filed, and it will create a deadline for all Guam clergy abuse victims to file claims,” James said. “It will be important for those who have not come forward to do so and file their claim.”

Guam attorney Anthony Perez, who is also representing victims, says the bankruptcy does not mean the archdiocese will be shuttered.

“Just because the archdiocese is filing for bankruptcy does not mean it will go out of business,” Perez said. “In my discussions with attorneys from my team with extensive experience in these types of bankruptcies, this filing will allow the archdiocese to reorganize and still be operational after the claims are paid and the bankruptcy is closed.”

In essence, by doing this, the Church will start over virtually no assets and an entirely new strategy. It also means there’s reason to doubt how prominent a force it will be moving forward.

Earlier this year the Vatican removed the suspended Guam archbishop from office and ordered him not to return to the Pacific island after convicting him of some charges in a Vatican sex abuse trial.

The Vatican didn’t say what exactly Archbishop Anthony Apuron had been convicted of, and the sentence was far lighter than those given high-profile elderly prelates found guilty of molesting minors.

A bankruptcy may have been the least Guam’s Catholic Church could do. But unless it comes along with concrete changes to the Church’s abuse and reporting policies, it’s next to useless.

I agree with the writer. And I don't like the idea of putting a time limit on making a claim against the church. Some survivors may just not be ready to come forward for some time. I'm not particularly happy that the church will survive in Guam either. What they have done there is an abomination to God and they do not deserve another opportunity to blaspheme God and destroy more islanders.

A 77-year-old man from Amsterdam was sentenced to four years in prison by the court in Zwolle. He was convicted of sexually abusing four girls in Southeast Asia, for creating, possessing, sharing and importing child pornography, and for possessing and importing animal pornography, NU.nl reports.

Johan W.'s victims are from the Philippines and Thailand, where he lived since 2008. He was arrested at Schiphol in May last year, immediately after he arrived from Thailand. He had child pornography in his possession at the time. Investigation showed that he owned hundreds of pornographic images and videos involving children, many of which he made himself.

The court in Zwolle imposed an extra long probation period of 10 years on the man. According to the court, W. had already been convicted of this type of crime multiple times and does not recognize that he is doing anything wrong. He also refused treatment. The court said that W. blatantly took advantage of the girls, who lived in poverty. He must also pay his victims 2 thousand euros in damages.

The Public Prosecutor demanded 4 years in prison, one of which conditionally suspended, against W. 

Good grief! 3 years in prison for a prolific paedophile with no conscience. How pathetic! He doesn't believe raping a child is wrong, so why put him on probation? It's not like he is capable of learning anything, or empathy with the children he destroys! He won't even take treatment. He should never be allowed to walk free again, ever.
