Stronger laws to protect children from exploitation

26 September 2017

People who administer websites that disseminate or stream child exploitation material could face up to ten years in jail under new laws introcued by the State Government. 

The Statutes Amendment (Child Exploitation and Encrypted Material) Bill 2017 will ensure both Police and the Courts are well-equipped to deal with matters involving the distribution of child exploitation material.
