Protecting minors against the excesses of sects

During a parliamentary debate, which was held today on the basis of a report by Rudy Salles (France, EPP/CD), PACE said that was “particularly concerned about the protection of minors, in particular minors who belong to religious minorities, including sects”, while being committed to a policy of respect for freedom of religion or belief.

The adopted resolution included a call on national parliaments to set up study groups on the protection of minors, in particular those belonging to religious minorities.
