Roger Moore demands end to sexual exploitation of childrenJune 3rd, 2009 - 12:22 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, June 3 (ANI): Former 007 Roger Moore has urged officials around the world to protect children from sexual exploitation by pursuing paedophiles across the borders.
While speaking in Germany, on behalf of Unicef - for which he is a longterm ambassador - Moore called for police to enter foreign countries in a bid to catch abusers and put them behind bars.
“Childhood is being destroyed by sexual abuse, violence and neglect. We must stop it. If we do nothing, our silence would mean acceptance,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
“I can hardly imagine a more shameful violation of the rights of children as the deliberate exploitation of their bodies by unscrupulous adults to serve their sexual appetite.
“They destroy the childhood of their victims and do harm to them that lasts throughout their lives.
“Perpetrators must be followed across borders,” he added. (ANI)
