Who does the legislator listen to?
We understand perfectly when the legislator says: if not this, then what? We, as an organisation that stands up for digital human rights have only a limited say in the matter. It’s the experts of sexual abuse whom we should listen to. Experts like the National Rapporteur on Trafficking in Human Beings or the Netherlands Institute for the Study of Crime and Law Enforcement, who have researched this area thoroughly. It’s experts like the Sexual Assault Center or Victim Support Netherlands who work from the trenches, helping victims of all ages, every day. These people can rightly be termed experts, with a wealth of experience, knowledge, and ideas on how victims are best helped, and new victims can be prevented.
