NGO to Sensitise Parents Against Internet Pornography

Panafrican News Agency (Dakar), 28 March 2001

Port Louis, Mauritius - Halley Movement, a Mauritian non-governmental organisation, will launch in April a sensitisation campaign on Internet pornography, targeting parents throughout the island.

"We want to inform them that there exists several means to prevent their children from getting access to pornographic materials on the Internet," Mahendra Busgopaul, general secretary of the movement said.

According to Busgopaul, Internet pornography could become a social ill in the country as more and more people are getting access to the Internet.
