Military slow to act

OTTAWA - Canadian soldiers aired concerns about the sexual abuse of children in Afghanistan by Afghan personnel according to a new report that concludes the military failed to effectively deal with the issue.  The inquiry was launched in 2008 in response to stories in the Toronto Star that told how Canadian soldiers knew of sexual abuse of young boys but had been told by their commanders to ignore the assaults.  (Toronto Star)

Their names, breezy and alive, conjure the girls they used to be before they collided with horror.   There was Megan Kanka, the 7-year-old from New Jersey. Her rape and murder at the hands of a neighbor who - unknown to her parents - was a sex offender inspired Megan's Law.  That statute led to electronic lists of offenders' addresses.  There was Jessica Lunsford, the 9-year-old from Florida. Her rape and murder 150 yards from her home led to Jessica's Law, which banned predators from living near where children congregate.  There was Amber Hagerman, the 9-year-old from Texas. Her abduction and murder led to the creation of Amber Alerts, advising the public about missing children.  (LA Times)  PREVIOUS:  Murder of Chelsea King

Child sex doll?

ST JOHN'S - There's a trial going on in Newfoundland that centres on the contents of a long, rectangular box.  Inside the box is an unassembled child sex doll, shipped from Japan.  So far, the only ones to see it are the police, officials with the CBSA and an expert who has only seen pictures of it.  Child porn cases usually include images of kids being sexually exploited. You have actual victims.  But the Kenneth Harrisson case raises the question of whether an inanimate object constitutes child porn.  (CBC)



OTTAWA - A splashy news conference touted Canada's membership in a global alliance against child sex abuse, but an internal document says the move was merely "symbolic" and places no obligations on the federal government.  (CP)   PREVIOUS:   Declaration of the Global Alliance against child sexual abuse online   Rob Nicholson    Police-reported sexual offences against children and youth in Canada, 2012

4 years and $53M

CORNWALL, Ont. - Rumours that have swirled around this eastern Ontario city for years that children were abused at the hands of a pedophile ring were neither put to rest nor given credence Tuesday by a $53-million public inquiry report four years in the making.   The Cornwall inquiry's official mandate was to examine institutional responses to historical claims of sexual abuse, but the sensational allegation that fuelled it went unresolved in the more than 1600-page report.  (CP)

Whistleblower faces jail

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia - A British teacher is facing up to six months in jail after being convicted of defamation for comments she made in exposing pedophiles at a children's charity in Ethiopia 10 years ago.  Jill Campbell and her husband Gary Campbell compiled evidence in 1999 that helped convict the director of an Ethiopian orphanage run by the Swiss charity Terre Des Hommes-Lausanne. The charity acknowledged the abuse took place, but brought a successful defamation case against the Campbells for their claims that the charity's senior staff covered up the scandal.  (AP)
