Manila Bulletin - - Visayas News - By LES­LEY VESTIL

SAN FER­NANDO, Cebu – A team from the po­lice and In­ter­na­tional Jus­tice Mis­sion (IJM) ar­rested a woman in Barangay San­gat, this town, Wed­nes­day on al­le­ga­tions she was mak­ing her daugh­ter and two other un­der­age girls ap­pear in a cy­ber­porn site fre­quented by pe­dophiles.

Sr. Supt. Romeo Perigo, Chief of Women and Chil­dren Pro­tec­tion Cen­ter (WCPC) said the 15-year-old daugh­ter was res­cued with the other mi­nors.

The mother, whose name was be­ing with­held to pro­tect the iden­tity of the mi­nors, is deny­ing the al­le­ga­tions. But Perigo said po­lice have been track­ing her ac­tiv­i­ties since April and build­ing up a case against her.

An en­trap­ment was ar­ranged in which an un­der­cover of­fi­cer paid the woman P2500 to 3500 in ex­change for the mi­nors’ naked photos and videos.

Perigo said the team is still try­ing to find out the woman’s for­eign or lo­cal con­tacts.

IJM Cebu Field Of­fice Di­rec­tor John Tanagho said the woman found cy­ber­porn to be lu­cra­tive.

The res­cued mi­nors were placed in the pro­tec­tive cus­tody of the DSWD and will un­dergo psy­choso­cial in­ter­ven­tion, in­clud­ing ther­apy and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion, Mag­pale said.

Perigo named six ar­eas in Cebu where cy­ber­porn could be flour­ish­ing: Bogo, Tal­isay, Santa Fe, Maderide­jos, Cor­dova and San Fer­nando.
