With assistance from Norwegian Kripos, Philippine police have arrested two persons who are believed to have been the ones responsible for the directly transmitted child molestation to Norwegian customers.
At the time of the arrest on Saturday, six children aged 9 to 17 years were also found at the place where the accused were arrested. All of them were taken care of by the government of the Philippines, said NCIS.
The case is related to the Norwegian police’s further unravelling of the case where a 65-year-old man from Hordaland has been charged with having ordered the sexual abuse that was transferred directly to him. The man is in custody in Norway.
– Live transmission of sexual abuse is something we have looked upon with great concern. Now it seems that we have saved several children from ongoing abuse through this action, head of NCIS Ketil Haukaas says.
Live transmissions of abuse over the Internet are sent to a paying customer, who are watching, and also may give direct instructions on what the child or children in question are to do.
The man who is now in custody, is also charged with gross human trafficking. He is believed to have made videos of the transferred abuses and shared them with Norwegian children.
