Criminal activities in the city of Parañaque involving Chinese nationals continue to happen. Very recently, a prostitution operation in the form of a cybersex den located in a certain executive village in the city (note: GMA Network did not reveal which village was it in its news report) was entered by personnel of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on a rescue mission. The raid, which took place on May 11, resulted the arrest of one Chinese national and rescue of several victims.
To put things in perspective, here is the GMA Network news video for you all to watch…
Now we can take a close look at the details on GMA Network’s online news report. Here is an excerpt from their report with some parts in bold…
Operatives of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on Tuesday rescued 20 women, two of whom were minors, from an online human trafficking syndicate at an exclusive village in Parañaque.
According to John Consulta’s report on “24 Oras” on Wednesday, the NBI arrested Chinese national Kong Chiang She during the operation.
Meanwhile, the authorities found the women on the second floor of a house inside the village with their own rooms.
The NBI said the suspects used an online messaging app for their Chinese customers.
Through the app, selected customers can choose the sexual favors that the victims will do. The victims will then be brought to the customers’ homes or the hotel they have selected.
According to the NBI, sexual exploitation is especially dangerous amid the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.
Two of the women rescued tested positive in the COVID-19 rapid antigen test. Both the World Health Organization and the Department of Health though have discouraged the use of rapid antigen tests due to its unreliability and its chances of giving false negative results.
“When you engage in the services of the victim, they will not show you a certification that they are negative for swab test or antigen test,” NBI spokesperson Deputy Director Ferdinand Lavin said.
The arrested individuals declined to comment.
The above news is very disturbing, especially since the entire Philippines is still struggling under the COVID-19 pandemic and people in the city of Parañaque are struggling to get vaccinated. As for the Parañaque cybersex den that got stopped, there is a possibility that it contributed to the spreading of COVID-19 to other people during the time it operated and fulfilled transactions with its customers. As written in the above news report, two victims were found positive with COVID-19 based on the results of the rapid antigen test (which itself was deemed unreliable according the local and global health authorities). As such, all the victims (who were brought to the Department of Social Welfare and Development or DSWD) need to be tested with the proper, more reliable methods.
