Public urged to report child porn to police

Malacañang urged people to report any information on alleged selling of sensual photos and videos by financially troubled students as the National Bureau of Investigation and the justice department’s cybercrime office vowed to strengthen efforts against online human trafficking.

The Philippine National Police also ordered its Anti-Cybercrime Group to monitor activities in social media as PNP chief Debold Sinas called on parents and the social welfare department to intervene if these acts are done voluntarily.

The agencies noted reports of students holding a “Christmas sale” of lewd photos and videos to allegedly raise money for internet bills and gadgets for online classes.

Various sectors expressed concern the practice makes students vulnerable to sexual exploitation and unlawful acts.

Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra has also warned the public against traffickers who are taking advantage of the pandemic lockdowns to search for potential victims.
