Morocco launches new anti-pedophilia group

"Pedophilia must be treated like terrorism on the judicial level," said Najia Adib, head of Don't Touch my Children, one of 25 nongovernmental groups belonging to the new umbrella organization "No child is safe."

Those found guilty of rape or attempted rape of a minor face up to five years in prison under Moroccan law - and up to 10 to 20 years in prison, if violence is used, or a handicapped child is involved.

But child activists complain that actual sentences are far lighter.

"We need to take the example of France, which severely punishes pedophilia crimes, while those found guilty in Morocco only earn two to three years in prison," said Khalid Cherkaoui Semouni, head of the new organization, the Coalition Against Sexual Abuse Committed on Children.

Pedophilia is the primary or exclusive sexual attraction by adults to prepubescent youths. A person with this attraction is called a pedophile .Medical diagnosis manuals, currently describe pedophilia as a paraphilia and mental disorder of adults or older youths, if it causes clinically significant distress or impairment in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.
In my view this case have to be punished in a very strict way.
Morocco government should enter new rules about this disgusting incidents.
