Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) acting director, Police Senior Superintendent Jack Wanky, believes there may be more cybersex dens operating in the city and has ordered local police forces to be on the lookout for more operations.
This assertion comes after police raided a cybersex den in Barangay 26 last week, rescuing seven people, among them were six minors.
In a recent phone interview, Wanky affirmed the BCPO is actively doing its part in the campaign against cybercrimes.
However, Wanky stressed it should not only be the effort of the PNP to stop these types of crimes.
“We need collaborative efforts from all concerned sectors of society,” he explained.
The BCPO chief also urged city residents to do their share in eliminating cybersex dens in the city.
Earlier on Friday, Department of Social Services and Development (DSSD) head Pacita Terro said the six children were rescued after it was discovered they were being pimped by a 35-year-old woman to foreigners on the internet for prices between P1,000 and P25,000.
The Philippine National Police (PNP), meanwhile, is presently coordinating with international law enforcement agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in the United States, to locate the viewers, whom Terro referred to as “pedophiles.”/DGB, WDJ
