Over 100 Acts of Sexual Exploitation Reported in Moscow in 2005 — Police

The Order of Merit for the Motherland was also given to the state prosecutor in the Yukos trial Dmitry Shokhin and the Russian Prosecutor General Vladimir Ustinov. 133 acts of sexual exploitation and human trafficking have been registered so far in the Russian capital in 2005, the head of a branch of Moscow’s Criminal Investigation Department, Yuri Nadeev, said at an international conference on Child Trafficking and Internet Pornography.

A MosNews correspondent reported that UNICEF representatives, Russian law enforcement authorities, MPs, FBI employees, U.S. federal prosecutors and trial attorneys from the U.S. and childrens’ rights activists took part in the meeting. 114 criminals have been identified and 111 cases have been sent to court.

Among those cases there was one act of compulsion to sexual activity, 20 acts of sexual exploitation of children under 16, 63 crimes classified by the Russian Criminal Code as lecherous actions and 15 cases of child pornography. Two human trafficking criminal cases have been launched in Moscow since the beginning of 2005.

Nadeev also listed the 2004 statistics. 153 such crimes were registered over the year, while 121 criminals were identified and 100 cases were investigated and sent to court.

On December 10, 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly, its thirty articles enshrining basic and fundamental rights guaranteeing dignity of the human person and equality for all, regardless of race, color, creed or gender. A pipe dream?
