Dutch alarmed by paedophile group

BBC News, The Hague

A political party with a paedophile agenda has been registered in The
Netherlands, prompting outrage among many parts of society.

The party plans to push for a cut in the legal age for sexual relations to
12 from 16 and for legalisation of child pornography and sex with animals.

The Charity, Freedom and Diversity (NVD) party says it promotes freedom of
speech and will stand in May elections.

MPs say they will ask the government to do something to stop the new party.

The Charity, Freedom and Diversity Party says it intends to "shake The
Hague awake".


The party says its aim is to break taboos and fight intolerance. Its
members say they want paedophilia to be freely discussed, arguing that a
ban just makes children curious.

They claim the subject has been a taboo since the 1996 Marc Dutroux child
abuse scandal in Belgium.

They also want to break the "negative" stigma surrounding paedophilia by
getting into parliament.

But the NVD says it is not just a one-issue party. It also wants children
from the age of 12 to be able to vote; it promotes the legalisation of
hard and soft drugs and free train travel for all.
