Action on indecent Russian website(January 13, 2015)
Mark has written to both the Foreign Secretary and the Home Secretary following the news that a Russian website is using images of children taken from social media sites belonging to Preston constituents.
Mark said: ‘I am absolutely appalled that sick individuals are using images innocently posted by proud parents and using them on a website that encourages users to post comments of a sexual nature. I am calling upon the Home Secretary, Teresa May and Foreign Minister, Philip Hammond to look urgently into this situation and to have this site shut down as soon as possible.
I have also demanded an immediate investigation and the Foreign Secretary to call an urgent meeting with the Russian Ambassador to prevent this from happening again.
In the meantime, I am urging Preston constituents to ensure that they update their privacy settings on their social media profiles to prevent further incidences.’
