STRASBOURG (Parlement Européen), 13 jan (AFP) - Le Parlement européen a exprimé jeudi son "inquiétude" concernant la prostitution enfantine au Cambodge et le trafic des êtres humains à destination et en provenance de ce pays.
Dans une résolution non contraignante, les députés ont "souligné leur inquiétude quant à la prostitution enfantine au Cambodge et au trafic des êtres humains, pratiqué tant à destination qu'en provenance du Cambodge, dans le but de les utiliser à des fins de travail forcé, de prostitution, de mendicité ou d'adoption illégale".
Ils ont également dénoncé "l'attaque" menée le 8 décembre dernier dans un refuge de l'ONG Agir pour les Femmes en Situation Précaire (Afesip) à Phnom Penh, où 80 femmes prostituées ont été enlevées.
La résolution condamne enfin "l'industrie du tourisme sexuel au Cambodge et dans les autres pays où cette pratique a cours, et demande que les Etats membres de l'UE créent et appliquent la législation nécessaire pour traduire en justice toutes les personnes mêlées à des affaires de tourisme sexuel impliquant des mineurs".
