Consultation Paper on Proposed Legislation for the Prevention of Child Pornography

6. Child Sex Tourism

20. Our proposals concerning child sex tourism will remain largely the same as those contained in the published Crimes (Amendment) Bill 1999, in which we proposed -

(a) to provide extra-territorial effect to a list of sexual offences under the Crimes Ordinance, Cap. 200, if the victim is under 16 years of age; and

(b) to criminalise the arranging and advertising of child sex tours.

21. During the consultation in 1998/1999, the relevant proposals were widely supported. Further comments were received after the Amendment Bill's publication in the Gazette but they were mainly on the technical and textual aspects.
