Addressing child abuse: PACE rapporteur to visit Romania

Bucharest, Romania

PACE rapporteur Pierre-Alain Fridez (Switzerland, SOC) will carry out a fact-finding visit to Bucharest from 4-5 September 2023, in the context of the preparation of his report entitled “Child abuse in Europe: addressing it, compensation and prevention”.

The aim of the visit is to promote Swiss good practice in dealing with child abuse in institutions, and to look at the legacy of child abuse in public institutions under the Communist regime in Romania, as well as the current situation of victims who have become adults.

Mr Fridez is due to meet victims, NGO representatives, historians, the Romanian delegation to PACE as well as representatives of the national authorities.
