A delegation led by Deputy Minister of Public Security, Sen. Lieut. Gen Le Quy Vuong attended the We Protect Children Online Summit in London on December 10-11, an event that rallied a global move in the war against online child sex abuse.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron, in his keynote speech, said a range of countries have committed to law enforcement response to tackle child abuse images, adding that a new global child protection fund would be set up, with the UK the first and most major donors paying 50 million GBP over the next five years.

Addressing the summit, Secretary of State for the UK Home Department Theresa May mentioned millions of images telling children abuse available on the web and appealed for a crackdown on online paedophiles.

The UK is currently pioneering in the fight against the dark net of child sex abusers with the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) – a British intelligence and security organisation and the National Crime Agency at the forefront.

The GCHQ technological expertise and NCA investigative ability will help analyse and filter huge volumes of child porn images hidden on dark sites, Cameron said.

Participants called for clearing out porn images from the web and intensifying global coordination among law enforcement agencies.

At a working session with NCA General Director Keith Bristow and Executive Director David Almond earlier, Vuong said both sides have worked effectively on combating transnational crime, especially illegal immigration, drug trafficking, and child sex abuse.

He proposed sharing more information about criminals via the launch of a hotline while stepping up personnel training and negotiations towards the signing of an extradition agreement and a memorandum of understanding on financial and money laundering data as soon as possible.

He expressed wish for more UK support to the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security in equipment and technologies for the fight against cyber crime, crime statistics and immigration management.
