ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Tuesday, December 29th 2015 [ME NewsWire]
The Virtual Global Taskforce (VGT) recently welcomed the joining of the Child Rescue Coalition to the VGT, with the aim to promote the efforts of protecting children from online sexual exploitation. The new membership joining came after a vote by the members of the VGT’s Board of Directors.
Major General Dr. Nasser Lakhrebani Al Nuaimi, Secretary General of the Office of HH Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, Chair of the VGT stressed that the joining of the Child Rescue Coalition is an important addition to the VGT, given the Coalition’s efforts and success in fighting child sexual abuse. The efforts are embodied through advanced data and technology, provided to child exploitation investigators around the world, to help track, arrest and convict those who use the internet to harm children.
He pointed the keenness of the UAE to support the efforts of the VGT in child protection, and noted the cooperation in fighting children related crimes on a global level. He reiterated on the work through the current chair of the VGT to engage as many law enforcement agencies as possible in the VGT to continue its role in law enforcement; drive leading projects and programs; and mobilize the world, public opinion, and awareness organizations to dedicate their efforts to protect children from any violations.
“We are honored to be included among an elite group of organizations committed to the protection of our most vulnerable populations, our children," said Carly Asher Yoost, president and founder of the Child Rescue Coalition. “The development of international relationships, networks and communications that this recognition affords us is instrumental to our continued growth and success.”
According to the Child Rescue Coalition (CRC), to date, the sophisticated Child Protection System technology has successfully aided in the prosecution and conviction of more than 6,500 online predators and rescued over 1,000 abused children in the past four years. Arrests have been made in over 20 countries.
The CRC, is a Boca Raton-based nonprofit organization with global reach, has spent the past decade building the world’s most sophisticated technology to hunt online predators.
Through proactive partnerships with law enforcement, the nonprofit’s system has tracked 44 million offenders around the world in order to protect children from sexual exploitation and abuse.
