Philippine bishops form committee to fight child porn

.- The Catholic bishops of the Philippines formed an ad-hoc committee on Tuesday to lead effective campaigns in the Church and the media to help stamp out child pornography.

Former Philippine Ambassador to the Holy See Henrietta de Villa was elected chair of the ad-hoc committee. She said advocacy against child pornography would mobilize the CBCP (Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Phillipines) commissions, Catholic schools and universities and mandated organizations.

Last week, Optical Media Board head Eduardo Manzano sought the bishops’ assistance to lead the campaign against the proliferation of child pornographic materials in department stores and shopping malls.

The bishops expect to receive the ad-hoc committee’s first report Aug. 9.
