The new rules also include provisions aimed at combating child pornography on-line and sex tourism.Furthermore, it aims to prevent paedophiles already convicted of an offence from exercising professional activities involving regular contact with children.The five men and one young offender – a teenaged boy – are accused in 13 assaults dating back to January.
