MANILA, Philippines – The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) simultaneously raided Monday night, February 17, at least 3 separate sites suspected as cybersex centers, among them a compound that houses a Christian school in Alabang. 

The operations started at 11:30 pm Monday, February 17, and ended around 4 am Tuesday, February 18.

Among those raided include:

  • Mountaintop Christian Academy, Alabang, Muntinlupa City
  • PA Microsource Inc, Quezon City 
  • an apartment-type unit along Quirino Highway, Novaliches  
 

 

NBI Cybercrime Division Chief Ronald Aguto said Tuesday morning that the suspected cybersex center in the Christian school is located in an adjacent building but shares the same entrance gate with the school.

The school, he said, has approximately 2,000 students. The NBI is now coordinating with the Department of Education over a reported 2006 disaccreditation of the school. The bureau will look into the reasons behind the alleged termination of the school’s license.

At least 30 individuals are in the custody of the NBI, which is stil determining their role in the illegal sale of pornographic materials.

During the operations, NBI seized 75 computers. Initial investigation points to the centers allegedlly managing adult porn sites, where foreigners can log with a corresponding membership fee.

“It’s disturbing, because some of the children there are Filipinos,” said Aguto, explaining that some of the porn sites featured minors.

The NBI is also looking into the possibility that the 3 centers are under the same management. – Rappler.com
