Sex tourism and child pornography are two of the main topics on the agenda at an Interpol conference which opens in Palma this morning with the participation of around 130 Interpol experts from all over the world. The group of experts from the United Kingdom, Europe, the United States, the Middle East, Asia and Africa, meet twice a year to discuss the latest developments in the war against child pornography and the sex trade and over the next three days in Palma delegates will discuss progress made since the last meeting and plans for the immediate future. One of the other aims of the bi-annual conference is to further relations with police forces and the courts in order to promote prevention and the reduction of crimes against minors. One other important area is that of tracking sex offenders down. During the three-day conference, which opens this morning at 9.30, delegates will be split in to five groups. One will involve specialists in finding missing children, another will deal with child prostitution and sex tourism, a third will discuss judicial issues, the fourth will deal with child pornography and the final group will be working on sex crimes. Some of the delegates attending the conference will be among the most expert Interpol and police investigators in the world and the conference will be opened today by the President of Interpol and the Commissioner General of the Spanish Judicial Police, Jose Espigares Mira.
