The Baleares Parliament refuses to set up a committee of inquiry on the sexual exploitation of minors in care at the Mallorca Institute for Social Affairs

Question écrite de M. Luis GARICANO - Commission européenne


Subject: The Baleares Parliament refuses to set up a committee of inquiry on the sexual exploitation of minors in care at the Mallorca Institute for Social Affairs

A police investigation into the gang rape of a 13-year-old girl in care sparked a prostitution and child abuse scandal involving the Mallorca Institute for Social Affairs (IMAS). The authorities have acknowledged that 16 minors (15 girls and one boy) have been sexually exploited, but social workers at IMAS have stated that almost all the under-age residents are involved in a prostitution network, and that they have been reporting sexual abuse for years. On 13 February 2020 the Baleares Parliament voted down a motion to set up a committee of inquiry to identify those responsible for the abuse.

1. Given that the Balearics Government is refusing to investigate its own public child protection services, thereby breaching the directive on combating child sexual abuse, what arrangements does the Commission have in place to safeguard the rights of children in care who are the victims of sexual exploitation?

2. How, under the new EU gender equality strategy, will the Commission deal with the plight of vulnerable girls who are the victims of sexual abuse? At the same time, how will it deal with the implementation of the directive on trafficking in human beings?

Answer given by Ms Johansson on behalf of the European Commission

(15 June 2020)

The Commission has launched infringement procedures against 23 Member States, including Spain, for incorrect transposition of the directive 2011/93/EU (1). Assistance to victims of child sexual abuse was one of the challenges identified across Member States. The Commission will closely monitor the correct implementation of the directive in the Member States and take enforcement actions, where necessary.

The Commission monitors the implementation of the Anti-Trafficking Directive (2) by Member States in accordance with its powers under the Treaties and may take the appropriate action, including, where necessary, the launch of infringement procedures (3).

Supporting Member States in strengthening their child protection systems is a priority for the Commission, according to the 10 Principles for integrated child protection systems (4) developed at the 2015 European Forum on the Rights of the Child.

In 2020, the Commission will adopt a strategy for a more effective fight against child sexual abuse, which will promote a strong response from public authorities and the private sector, and a strategy towards the eradication of trafficking in human beings. The Commission is preparing a comprehensive strategy for the rights of the child for 2021, where child protection features centrally. This strategy will put forward concrete actions for Member States.

Early March 2020, the Commission adopted a Gender Equality Strategy 2020-2025, which has a strong focus on ending gender- based violence. The Commission will continue to work towards the EU’s accession to the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence.

Should the EU’s accession to the Istanbul Convention remain blocked, the Commission intends to propose in 2021 measures, within the limits of EU competence, to achieve the same objectives as the Istanbul Convention. The Commission will also launch an EU network on the prevention of gender-based violence and domestic violence.
