20 children brought to safety from online sexual exploitation by police and IJM

Back-to-back operations by police across Central Luzon resulted in 20 children being brought to safety from exploitation.

Four suspects, two of whom are mothers of some of the victims, were arrested.

The children are now safe in the custody of partner agencies providing trauma-informed and recovery care.

“Through these strong partnerships we are able to identify and rescue those who are victimized through online sexual exploitation and bring those responsible to justice both in the Philippines and the United States.” - Ricardo Navalta, the Homeland Security Investigations attaché

“We appeal to the public: your concern and vigilance is critical to the removal of children from online sexual exploitation. Report to AlengPulis on Facebook,” the PNP-WCPC’s Chief added.
