Some of Europe’s most dangerous sex offenders in the spotlight

Par CorpComm_NS
It’s happening now, every two minutes. That’s the average time a sexual offence is reported to the police in the European Union, be it rape, sexual violence or assault. Anyone can be a victim of sexual assault, although women and children suffer the most at the hands of these violent criminal acts. To turn the spotlight on the perpetrators of such violent sexual assaults, Europol is launching a campaign in 18 countries across Europe to ask for your help in finding some of Europe’s most dangerous sex offenders.
