Child Cybersex in the Philippines


This week we feature a special program about the dark child cybersex trade in the Philippines and what authorities and advocates are doing about it. Barnaby Lo visits a town in the southern Philippines that was the center of a major crime bust by authorities in 2013. He meets two young women who themselves were the victims of child cybersex abuse and are now in a program that is helping them recover from their traumatic experience. We also meet a Dutch NGO that is using a special program to lure and identify online predators who are seeking out children online for sex acts – and reporting alleged perpetrators to international police.
