MANILA, Philippines- Nagdeklara ang gobyerno ng Pilipinas ng  giyera laban sa  online sexual abuse and exploitation of children (OSAEC).

Sa  Inter-Agency Press Conference Against Online Sexual Exploitation sa New Executive Building (NEB), Malakanyang ay  sinabi ni  Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin “Boying” Remulla  na hindi mag-aalinlangan ang administrasyon na kasuhan at usigin ang lahat ng indibiduwal na “directly at indirectly” na nagpartisipa sa nasabing karumal-dumal na krimen.

“We’re declaring a war on this… Lahat ng pwedeng gawin ng bansa, 100% of law enforcement is here and 100% of jails and correctional facilities are here. The BJMP (Bureau of Jail Management and Penology) and the BuCor (Bureau of Corrections) under us are here to make sure that we will reserve a place for those who’ll insist on doing what they do. Law enforcement and jail are here with us as well as the DICT (Department of Information and Communications Technology), the NBI (National Bureau of Investigation), the PNP (Philippine National Police), and their cybercrime units,” ayon kay Remulla sabay sabing “We will be there for anybody who’ll insist on perpetuating this crime.”

Ayon sa mga opisyal na nakiisa sa  media briefing,  ang Pilipinas ay sentro ng industriya ” that exploits and harms children.”

Wala namang naipresentang pag-aaral o data sa nasabing briefing subalit sinabi ni Social Welfare and Development Secretary Erwin Tulfo na ito’y nagpapatuloy na problema na napag-iwanan dahil sa ” myriad of issues plaguing the country.”

“Unfortunately, the focus was on pandemic for the past two years. Naka-focus tayo sa pandemic, we focused on the war on drugs, we focused on graft and corruption… Matagal nang problema ito, hindi lang naa-address because we’re so busy with other problems. Pandemic, war on drugs, terrorism sa Mindanao, ito ‘yung mga issues na natatabunan s’ya. It has been there and it’s a big problem pero hindi nabibigyan ng pansin. Kaya right now, this administration is keen and very serious on stopping this,” ayon kay Tulfo.

Nauna rito, sinasabing malaki ang naging ambag at bahagi ng lockdowns sa paglala ng situwasyon ng  online exploitation sa mga kabataan sa Pilipinas.

Ayon kay Philippine Special Envoy to United Nations (UN) Nikki Teodoro na madaling  ikalakal o ibenta ang mga kabataan para pagkakitaan dahil sa teknolohiya.

Bukod dito, madali aniyang pumunta ng bansa dahil hindi naman kailangan ng visa.

“Lockdown played a big part of parents actually, may I say, prostituting their children online… marketing, sorry, marketing their children online for profit,”  ayon kay Teodoro.

“Then the fact that It’s easy to put up a site. You put one, you can have ten at the same time, so it’s technology that’s made it easier for these perpetrators to market their children or our children,” dagdag na pahayag nito.

“It’s gotten easier and it’s gotten more lucrative so the lockdown played a big part and now we have to play a bigger part in protecting our children by reporting it immediately, “ang wika pa ni Teodoro. Kris Jose
