Our expert says:
I dopubt that there's any specific legal right granted to such an organization, but surely any citizen who is aware of possible paedophile or other abusive behaviour, is entitled to report it to the police and to child welfare authorities and ask for this to be investigated. I think a legal duty to report such behaviour rests on doctors and othe profesiionals who become aware of it. The situation is complicated if you say the alleged perpetrator is mentally retarded, because although he may be physically an adult, he may be psychologically and socially still a child himself. He could probably be helped, after full assessment by a specialist and clinic, with medication to reduce his sexual interest and behaviour. He may not be considered legally responsible for his behaviour, depending on his mental age and degree of retardation --- he may be much les aware that this is wrong than one might expect. And one should also consider that it may well be distressing for the children to have to testify in such a trial. But the problem may be better solved if he can be treated and mecome sexually inactive towards others.
