Ireland will be the first European country to cancel paedophile’s passports

first_imgIreland is set to become the first European country to cancel convicted paedophile’s passports.This is being done in a bid to stop them from travelling and reoffending overseas.Earlier this year Australia became the first country in the world to cancel passports in order to crack down on child sex tourism. Last year, over 800 convicted paedophiles travelled from Australia, with many visiting developing Asian countries such as the Philippines. Speaking to The Irish Examiner, Nobel Prize-nominated Irish missionary Fr. Shay Cullen says: “It is a grievous crime for anyone to travel abroad to commit child abuse.“Legislation was passed in Australia, but we want other countries to follow, and Ireland to take the lead in the EU on this.“The benefit will be very big in terms of child protection. When more countries follow the Australian lead, many more children will be safer from abusers.”Ireland will be the first European country to cancel paedophile’s passports was last modified: October 8th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:AustraliaIrelandpaedophilepassportlast_img
