Authorities will be able to prosecute adults for intending to engage in the sexual abuse of children under the age of 15 and the production of child pornography merely for sending an e-mail to a child with a request for a meeting in person, the TASR newswire wrote on February 24.
According to a bill approved by the government this week, such people could face up to three years in prison if convicted. The amendment to the Penal Code, which implements a relevant European directive from 2011, should come into effect as of June.
