A Sri Lankan national was arrested by operatives of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) in the Philippines for turning his Filipina wife into a cybersex slave, GMA News reported.
According to a report by John Consulta on GMA News 24 Oras, the foreigner was caught in his home in San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan after his wife sought help from authorities.
For seven months, the woman said she was forced to have sex with him over livestream and viewed by the Sri Lankan’s foreign clients.
The woman said she decided to seek help from the NBI after the Sri Lankan started molesting her daughter from a previous relationship. The foreigner also sent a copy of their sex video to her relatives.
When asked by the NBI, the Sri Lankan said he did it for the money.
“It’s because we don’t have any option, I don’t have money,” he said.
Ronald Agulto, chief of NBI Interpol, said the Sri Lankan could face charges for violation of RA 9208 or Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act of 2003, RA 9262 or Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act of 2004, and the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012.
