International abuse claims
We represent survivors of abuse perpetrated by charity workers, missionaries and individuals working for British organisations overseas
We represent survivors of abuse perpetrated by charity workers, missionaries and individuals working for British organisations overseas who, by virtue of their status and comparative wealth have been able to exploit some of the most vulnerable children in the world.
Sadly, as international travel has become cheaper and wifi has become more widespread, ‘sex tourism’ has increased to a frightening level. Many of our clients have been subjected to horrendous abuse directed by a third party over live video links.
Our clients are from disadvantaged, poor and marginalised communities in developing countries, which not only puts them at greater risk, but also makes it harder for them to hold their abusers to account.
The team at Leigh Day works closely with local and international law enforcement and non-governmental organisations to obtain compensation for our clients and recognition of the acts of abuse they have suffered.
