CEBU CITY - Since she was desperate for money to feed her family, 18-year-old Pia (real name withheld) was persuaded by her friends to work as a sex slave for an Australian national last year.
“She earned P10,000 per month,” said an agent of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) 7.
She accepted the job because, anyway, she said she had lost her virginity to her former boyfriend, thus reported the agent, who requested anonymity.
Pia, a freshman college student, was among the 15 girls rescued by an NBI 7 team led by Supervising Agent Rey Villordon from a cybersex den allegedly operated by Drew Frederick Shobbrook, 46, in Barangay Labangon, Cebu City yesterday afternoon.
Villordon said there are four suspected minors among the rescued girls that were brought to the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) 7 for counseling. They are mostly residents of Cebu City.
“Foreigners should stop abusing our women,” he said.
