With the help of our supporters, ECPAT UK has been lobbying the UK Government to close the ‘three-day loophole’, which currently allows registered sex offenders to travel abroad for up to three days without having to notify the authorities. This means that children overseas are left vulnerable to sexual exploitation by Britons travelling abroad for up to three days.
On 16 February, ECPAT UK was pleased to hear the Prime Minister make a commitment to close this loophole by making it compulsory for sex offenders to report to the authorities before any travel they intend to undertake.
ECPAT UK is concerned, however, that a similar commitment was made by the previous Government in 2008, but no action was taken.
Please ask your MP to write to James Brokenshire MP, Minister for Crime Prevention, to urge him to ensure that the Government fulfils its commitment to close the ‘three-day loophole’ immediately.
