Why have Stockholm?

Why have Stockholm?

The Editor,

All people (pedophiles excluded) from all over the world did not need the Stockholm

Conference (Declaration Against the Commercial Exploitation of Children): they know

about child exploitation and are strongly against it.

This very large meeting and those following have huge costs. Meanwhile, numerous

families, not having enough to eat, practically sell one child to save the others.

Misery, lack of legislation and of its implementation seem to be the roots of this

problem.

Waiting for an expert to explain if this is not so... Naively yours,

- C. Rabour, Phnom Penh.
