The European Parliament deplored the widespread and ongoing sexual abuse of thousands of boys and young men in Afghanistan, a practice locally known as bacha bazi, which constitutes child slavery and is prevalent in several provinces in the country.

Members of European Parliament called on the Afghan central and local authorities to eradicate such practices and to set up a national victim support helpline dedicated to children’s rights abuses.

They also urged the Afghan government to start a nationwide campaign to educate the general public about the prohibition of bacha bazi, as only a combination of law enforcement and education will make it possible to achieve the cultural change needed to eliminate such abuse.
