Training held on combating Internet-based crimes against minors  

Kathmandu, 20 Oct: A 5-day training on combating internet-based crimes against minors beginning from 16th of October has been accomplished today.

The training was organized by the French Embassy in Nepal, in partnership with the Nepal Police.

The training delved into the realm of Internet paedocriminality, addressing issues related to the dark web, file-sharing services, and online forums where children and teenagers may be targeted by sexual predators.

Practical exercises and real-life scenario simulations were integral components of the training.

This interactive approach provided Nepali police officers, coming from various departments including the Tourist Police, Cyber Bureau, Central Investigation Bureau, and the Women, Children, and Senior Citizen Service Directorate, with invaluable insights to enhance their capabilities in addressing cyber threats of this nature.

Among the trainers include, Mr Stéphane Bertoli and Mr Johan Suzan, investigators from the French National Department for the Protection of Minors (OFMIN).

“Protecting children from exploitation is not just a duty, but a collective responsibility that transcends borders,” said Mr. Gilles Bourbao, French Ambassador to Nepal, on the occasion.
