The Code

About 2 million children worldwide are under 18 and enslaved in the sex trade. Child sex tourism is big business. There are now more and more companies signing a code of conduct for the protection of children from sexual exploitation in travel and tourism. This code has 6 criteria’s below.

THE SIX CRITERIA

Suppliers of tourism services adopting the code commit themselves to implement the following six criteria:
1.
To establish an ethical policy regarding commercial sexual exploitation of children.
2.
To train the personnel in the country of origin and travel destinations.
3.

To introduce a clause in contracts with suppliers, stating a common repudiation of commercial sexual exploitation of children.
4.

To provide information to travellers by means of catalogues, brochures, in-flight films, ticket-slips, home pages, etc.
5.
To provide information to local “key persons” at the destinations.
6.
To report annually.

Visit http://www.thecode.org to learn more. Hotel chains like Carlson (owner of Radisson) and Accor (owner of Sofitel, Novitel, Motel 6 etc), European airlines like Air France, and travel agencies all over the world have signed on to the 6 point plan to fight child prostitution.

I know it’s hard sometimes, but especially if you are going to a country or city ¬†particularly notorious for child prostitution (e.g. Thailand, Cambodia, Moldova), please support companies¬†who are a member of this code. You’ll find a list of companies at http://www.thecode.org.

This is such a step forward in recognizing this issue and it’s good to see certain companies band together to fight this instead of doing what the majority of companies do: ignore it.

Svay Pak

Excerpt from Not My Life, the first documentary film to depict the horrifying and dangerous practices of human trafficking and modern slavery on a global scale. Svay Pak is one of the child sex slavery capital of the world. Many Westerners travel there to live out their sick desires with a child as young as 6 years old for the cost of less than a movie ticket. This town in Cambodia is one of the most popular in the “sex tourism” industry.

I can’t believe how Svay Pak came about to be known worldwide as the Paedophile Paradise City of the world. Most of the time, the police officers either use the services offered or are bribed by the slave owners to turn the other cheek and even go as far as to warn them about any upcoming investigations or raids.
