The Philippine Department of Justice has vowed to crack down on online sexual predators that victimize minors in the country.
President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. said he would not allow those involved in illegal sex trafficking for minors, including parents, to go scot-free if proven guilty.
“We are aware of the rising number of online sex trafficking in the country. We will not tolerate this as a nation. We need to go after these online sexual predators because they continue to pose a threat to the future of this nation,” Marcos told reporters on Aug. 23.
