CEBU, Philippines —  A 25-year-old woman allegedly offering online pornography involving her two sisters, including a 16-year-old minor, to foreign nationals was nabbed by the National Bureau of Investigation Central Visayas (NBI-7) following a recent entrapment operation.

Authorities identified the suspect as Claire (not her real name), a resident of Barangay Tisa, Cebu City.

In a press conference on Tuesday, February 7, Senior Agent Niño Rodriguez, investigator of the case, said Cabrera's lewd activities were discovered by the NBI during one of their random cyber patrolling.

Rodriguez said they used an undercover Facebook account with a profile of a foreign national, and the suspect then engaged in a conversation with them.

Rodriguez said through their transaction, the suspect begged for money to buy food and a cell phone load in exchange for her and her sisters' nude photos. Her sisters are aged 20 and 16.

He said Claire also offered a "cam show" with her siblings if the authorities posing as one of her clients paid her more money. Through this information, Rodriguez said they launched an entrapment operation to arrest the suspect and rescue the minor on January 31.

But Rodriguez said they found out the minor was already rescued in a shelter in Minglanilla following a report received by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) from a foreign law enforcement agency of her nude photos being viral in some international social media sites.

In an interview, the suspect denied allegations that she was sexually exploiting her siblings, particularly her 16-year-old sister.

"Wala ko kahibaw ana nila man, ako ra," said Claire.

She said that for her part, she had done the act to sustain her family's daily needs.

She said her transactions would range from P900 to P1,500, paid via a mobile wallet, with the most expensive transaction includes the so-called "cam show."

Claire said she has been doing this for a while, but it was only this year that she returned to the business.

Claire has a live-in partner but Rodriguez said the latter denied he knew of the suspect's online transactions.

On February 2 last week, the suspect was charged with violations of Qualified Trafficking in Persons under section 4 in relation to section 6 of the Republic Act 11862 or the Expanded Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act of 2022.

Authorities are set to determine if Claire's 20-year-old sister would also be filed a case through their ongoing investigation.

Arnel Pura, the NBI Mandaue Office agent-in-charge, urged the public to give information on any alleged cybersex acts through their hotline 436-6819 and text line 09178951080. – JMD (FREEMAN)
