Comments The Special Rapporteur, Mr. Juan Miguel Petit, visited France (Paris, St. Etienne and Lyon) at the invitation of the Government. He had requested the visit after having received information about a number of French children who were reportedly victims of paedophilia and pornography. He had also received information about efforts France was making to deal with the growing problem of trafficking of children and child prostitution. The Special Rapporteur would like to thank the French Government and acknowledge the very high level of cooperation and assistance it extended to him throughout his visit.
