Bratislava, March 26 (TASR) – Prosecutor-General’s Office spokesperson Andrea Predajnova stated on Tuesday that the office has been dealing with a case dating back around fifteen years in which girls at a children’s summer camp called HaHaLand were sexually abused, adding that it’s passed the case on to the regional prosecutor’s office in Bratislava.
“The matter will be closely monitored by a prosecutor from the PG’s office,” she added.
The case was highlighted by dailies SME and Dennik N. One of the abused girls, who is now an adult, decided to speak out to the former. She identified the perpetrator as the summer camp supervisor, who denies the accusations. The media also mentioned his communications with another young girl, supposedly concerning sexually graphic photographs. The crimes allegedly took place between 2003-06.
According to Predajnova, the office has been dealing with the area of sexual abuse for a long time. The annual activity report that the office presents to Parliament was extended to include a section on crimes committed against children for the first time last year. A significant portion of the report regards criminal activities of a sexual nature; especially concerning new areas of focus such as grooming, sexting and sexual solicitation.
