Police Scotland has been caught describing paedophiles as 'minor-attracted people' in a crucial end-of-year report that has raised concerns of softening language around child abuse.
The document, which assessed the force's performance during the past year, outlined that Police Scotland has been working to support a European project in order to 'counter the effects of child sexual exploitation'.
In reference to this project, the report read: 'This project’s main agenda is to develop understanding and approach to avoid the victimisation of children by engaging Minor-Attracted People (MAPs) and provide them with the necessary support, treatment and guidance to help prevent criminal activities.'
Following complaints, a Police Scotland stressed that the force does not use the term 'minor-attracted people' in reference to paedophiles.
The force outlined that the reference has been quoted from the proposed agenda of an EU group.
