Sexual exploitation of children rife in Fiji - reports

From , 5:02 am on 15 October 2020

Sexual exploitation of children has become rife in Fiji.  

And the problem is largely hidden from authorities and the public.

These are findings in a joint survey by the NGOs Save the Children, and End Child Prostitution and Trafficking International.

A recent UN report also revealed that abuse of children in Fiji is usually performed by family members, foreign tourists, taxi drivers, businesspeople and crew on foreign fishing vessels.
