NCMEC Report and Litigation
Although the crime of obscenity in relation to Child Pornography is regulated in the “Crimes Against General Morality” section of Article 226 of the Turkish Penal Code, the elements of the crime and its punishment are included without a clear definition and explanation of the concept of obscenity. The protected legal value, that is, the main purpose to be protected, is the physical, mental, moral and spiritual structure of the people living in the society, especially children.
All kinds of obscene communication or behavior against children, whether verbal or written, will cause crime, and sanctions are foreseen in the law for the acts of numbers by the person or persons who cause children to be exposed to inappropriate or adult content. The transmission of the said content to children may also be through different means. The crime of obscenity may occur by showing inappropriate videos, photographs and all kinds of images or making the child read inappropriate texts. Such content may also include inappropriate videos or photos, obscene texts, sounds and words. In addition, the publication of obscene images, texts or sounds through the press is a situation that aggravates the penalty to be imposed.
One of the most common types of crimes today is the crime of obscenity against children. In particular, NCMEC (National Center for Missing & Exploited Children), meaning the US National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Turkish, detects many images and sends them to the relevant units, and a public lawsuit is filed against these people.
What is NCMEC?
The US-based National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) has active working activities all over the world.
NCMEC, full name National Center for Missing & Exploited Children is a private not-for-profit organization headquartered in Virginia, USA. The foundation of the organization, whose purpose is to help children who are lost and/or abused, was laid in 1984. This organization was later accompanied by ICMEC, which was established in 1998.
Although NCMEC is established nationally, 93% of the reports received here relate to cases outside the United States. The main reason for this is the obligation of companies operating in the USA to report potential sexual abuse cases on the internet to CyberTipline within NCMEC, in accordance with 18 USC 2258A regulation. Because, as we know, social sites such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and many photo and video sharing sites that we use daily are based in the United States.
Established: June 13, 1984, United States
Headquarters: Alexandria, Virginia, USA
Founders: John Walsh, Ernie Allen, Ronald Reagan
