Ritualistic / religious child sexual abuse investigations in EU member states

We're waiting for Wesley Hall to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear European Parliament,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

- All the discussions, documents and meetings where there has been discussions inside the parliament about institutionalised child abuse cases from 2009 to 2019. These must include religious organisations; occult groups and/or those where children are abused in a ritualistic / religious situation. For clarification, the definition of ritual is a religious or solemn ceremony consisting of a series of actions performed according to a prescribed order.


- Documents and conclusions regarding any investigation that the Parliament opened about institutionalised child sexual abuse; forced adoption; the production of indecent images of children and sales/trafficking of children.

I notice that former MEP Robert Kilroy-Silk on 14th July 2006 submitted a written question to the commission asking if they were: 1) proposing to coordinate action amongst members states to eradicate ritual abuse against children and 2) going to attempt to discover the extent of children being abused this way in member states. The reply he got from Franco Frattini on 19th September 2006 was that “the commission is aware of media reports on this issue, which does not fall within its responsibilities. Consequently it has no plans to investigate the situation in member states and does not propose to coordinate action among them.” Please can you provide me with any updates on this serious issue concerning children being abused in a ritualistic / religious situation now that it’s evident that many people within institutional / religious / occult organisations are affected by child sexual abuse. 



I would like to request any information that suggests that the commission will be proposing to coordinate action amongst member states to eradicate institutionalised child sexual abuse in a ritualistic / religious situation. 

I would also like to request any information that suggests that the commission will attempt to discover the extent of children being abused in ritualistic / religious situations now that there’s clear evidence that this is happening in Europe.


There are numerous ongoing investigations and inquiries ongoing in member states into institutionalised child sexual abuse in a ritualistic / religious situation and it’s worrying that European parliament wasn’t willing to investigate or propose coordinate action in 2006. Please can you clarify the European parliaments current position on this matter in 2019.

Yours faithfully,

Wesley Hall
