The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has vowed to run after all persons including foreigners engaged in the online sexual exploitation of children (OSEC).

NBI Anti-Human Trafficking Division (NBI-AHTRAD) Chief Janet Francisco gave this commitment following the conviction of American David Timothy Deakin who has been selling pornographic materials using Filipino children.

“Let this sentence be a message to OSEC criminals: this is a war you can’t win,” she said in a statement on Thursday (May 28).

“We at NBI-AHTRAD and NBI as a whole, are strongly pursuing those who abuse our children and exploit them through the internet. You will not get away with this.” she assured.

The NBI-AHTRAD arrested Deakin in 2017 in Angeles City based from information from the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) which said he has been recording the sexual abuse of Filipino children and selling these online.

The International Justice Mission (IJM) also lauded the conviction as being the first foreigner convicted for trafficking in the Philippines through online proceedings.

“We commend the Philippine Courts for their relentless work amidst a pandemic,” said IJM national director Atty. Samson Inocencio Jr. in a statement.

Deakin, 55, was convicted last May 26 by the Olongapo City regional trial court for three counts of qualified human trafficking and sentenced to life imprisonment and ordered to pay fines and damages over P2 million.
