Former Bond actor demands end to child abuse


The 'Live and Let die' star, who is also a longterm ambassador for UNICEF, has demanded that officials should pursue paedophiles across international borders, Contact music reported.

Speaking in Germany to publicise a new report for UNICEF, the 81-year-old actor called for police to enter foreign countries in a bid to catch abusers and put them behind bars.

"Childhood is being destroyed by sexual abuse, violence and neglect. We must stop it. If we do nothing, our silence would mean acceptance," said Moore.

"I can hardly imagine a more shameful violation of the rights of children as the deliberate exploitation of their bodies by unscrupulous adults to serve their sexual appetite. They destroy the childhood of their victims and do harm to them that lasts throughout their lives. Perpetrators must be followed across borders," he added.
