Its a PenaltyThe Leader of the Conservatives in the European Parliament Syed Kamall has added his support to the "IT'S A PENALTY" campaign tackling sexual exploitation and abuse of children in Brazil.  IT'S A PENALTY aims to raise awareness amongst football fans and those travelling to Brazil for the World Cup that if they engage in sexual exploitation with a child aged 17 and under they could face prosecution both in Brazil, and their home country upon returning.
 
Syed Kamall leader of the Conservatives in the European Parliament said:
"I want all football fans from all countries in the European Union to be aware of the consequences if they engage in any sexual activity with children that under 17 in Brazil, the penalties are harsh for a reason; its plain wrong and should not happen."
 
The World Cup will be held in Brazil during June and July 2014. It is estimated that there are over 250,000 children involved in the child sex trade in Brazil (UNICEF). Police authorities are concerned that young girls in Brazilian cities will be trafficked and girls as young as 11 will be groomed for prostitution and offered to football fans and tourists. That is why we are taking action now.
 
IT’S A PENALTY is led by Happy Child International, Jubilee Campaign and The A21 Campaign, working in conjunction with the National Crime Agency whose CEOP (Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre) command leads on tackling travelling child sexual offenders in the UK.

Syed Kamall at Coulsden CollegeOn Tuesday 22nd April,  Coulsdon Sixth Form College welcomed Syed Kamall, Conservative MEP for London and Leader of the Conservatives in the European Parliament. Syed addressed Politics and Business students and answered questions on a wide range of issues including EU decision-making, Britain's place in the EU and his job as a Member of the European Parliament.

In the run up to the European Parliament elections on May 22nd, students asked Syed about Britain's membership of the European Union and whether David Cameron could renegotiate the terms and conditions of our membership.

After his talk Syed said "I was impressed by the questions asked and how well the students were informed about British and European politics. They obviously take a great interest in how Britain is governed. They asked challenging questions about Britain's membership of the European Union and demonstrated how important a referendum on this matter really is."

Ivan Tomb, Head of Politics at Coulsdon College who invited Syed said, “It was a pleasure to have Syed come and visit us at the College.  The students are currently working hard revising for their summer exams and to have the opportunity to quiz him on current political issues was a real bonus.  We’re very keen on this kind of enhancement activity at the College which really brings issues alive for our students.”
