EU Parliament criticises incompetent Commission work on child abuse

The European Commission proposed its badly drafted “Directive on combating sexual abuse, sexual exploitation of children and child pornography” in 2010. In 2011, it was finally adopted by the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament. Under the Directive, the European Commission was legally required to publish an implementation report by 18 December. The Commission ignored its legal obligation and published its report a year late, on 16 December 2016. It published one report on the whole Directive and one on the implementation of Article 25 on the Directive, on internet blocking. Despite taking an extra year to collect information, the 13-page document is almost entirely devoid of useful data.
