Girl, 17, charged with trafficking

A girl from Cebu City is facing criminal charges for allegedly trafficking three minor girls to foreigners online in exchange for money.

The police’s Women and Children Protection Center–Visayas field unit charged the 17-year-old suspected human trafficker with violation of Republic Act 9775 or the Anti-Child Pornography Act in relation to Republic Act 10175 or the Cybercrime Prevention Act.

The arresting team, led by Senior Supt. Romeo Perigo, carried out the entrapment inside the suspect’s house in Barangay Sambag 2, Cebu City yesterday afternoon.

The police’s surveillance in 2017 showed the suspected trafficker sent sexually explicit materials of herself and three other minor girls to tourists abroad.SEE MORE
