He demanded of the committee that strict laws be framed against the treatment of minors or their exploitation under the pretext of education.
Even before appearing on the committee, Paris Hilton had launched a campaign to close the Provo Canyon in Atta.
Paris Hilton staged an out-of-school protest against the school’s closure in October last year, which was attended by dozens of celebrities.
All the celebrities who took part in the demonstration had been studying or undergoing treatment at the school as a child and had also been sexually abused.
Provo Canyon School not only provides educational facilities but also provides treatment for children with various mental and physical problems.
Paris Hilton was sent to the school for a year for mental treatment by her parents because of her aggressive behavior.
Paris Hilton initially mentioned the incident of sexual abuse at the school in a documentary released in September 2020.
In the documentary “This is Paris Hilton”, the actress said that she was subjected to the worst forms of mental and physical abuse while training at Provo Canyon School.
Paris Hilton said in the documentary that she was subjected to the worst forms of physical abuse by the school administration, was given unknown drugs under the pretext of mental problems, was seen bathing naked, and was imprisoned naked as punishment.
Following the release of the documentary, Paris Hilton launched an online petition to close the school, and in October the actress demonstrated outside the school.
The actress has been pushing for the closure of the school since September 2020 and the enactment of strict laws to prevent the exploitation of children in such schools.
On the other hand, the management of Provo Canyon School has apologized to the actress and other victims and explained that now the management of the school has changed and such incidents do not happen in the school.
According to the administration, the school was the second in Paris Hilton’s administration and such incidents predate 2000, but 20 years ago the school was taken over by the new administration.
But Paris Hilton is adamant that the school is closed and that other similar schools be investigated for child abuse.
