TWO men were arrested during an entrapment operation by the National Bureau of Investigation in Central Visayas (NBI 7) after they allegedly demanded P1 million in cash from a businesswoman in exchange for not exposing her sex video.

The suspects were identified as Jaime Lisondra Ferrer of Barangay Borbon, Samboan, Cebu, and Raul Fajardo Dumagil of De Jesus Compound, Barangay Duljo Fatima, Cebu City.

The two were arrested inside the food court of a mall along Leon Kilat St., Cebu City on Tuesday, June 18, 2024, after receiving marked money worth P200,000 from one of the NBI undercover agents led by agent Wenceslao Galendez.

According to NBI Central Visayas, the two had initially received P70,000 in cash from the victim, who is a casino financier, but demanded an additional amount because they wanted the victim to give them P1 million in total.

After being notified of the problem, the victim’s lawyer, Jayson Repaso, went to NBI Central Visayas Director Rennan Augustus Oliva, who then issued an order for an entrapment operation.

It was discovered that the suspects had also shown the sex video to the victim’s friend, who allegedly gave them “rewards.”

The offenders underwent inquest proceedings before the Cebu City Prosecutor’s Office after charges for violating Republic Act (RA) 10175, or the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, and RA 9995, or the Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009, along with extortion and robbery, had been filed against them. / ANV / TPT
