MANILA – The administration of President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. reaffirmed its commitment to putting an end to online sexual exploitation of children (OSEC).
In a news conference with many agencies yesterday, August 23, the PBBM admin reaffirmed its commitment to putting a stop to online sexual exploitation of children (OSEC).
Governmental organizations will work together to eradicate OSEC cases that have increased as a result of pandemic lockdowns, including the National Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Immigration, and the Department of Social and Welfare Development.
Additionally, programs to combat child pornography are supported by the Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) of the United States.
“Ang layunin po namin dito, kaya nagsama-sama rito ay upang iparamdam sa mamamayan natin ang pangangailangang sugpuin natin ang mga krimen na ginagawa sa ating kabataan sa pamamagitan ng internet at sa pamamagitan mismo ng face-to-face na pangyayari at ito po’y karumal-dumal na krimen na ginagawa sa ating kabataan,” Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla said.
“Ang pagsama po sa amin dito ng law enforcement agencies natin ay isa lang pong hudyat na talagang hindi ho talaga tayo papayag na manatili itong ganito sa ating bansa,” he added. (ai/mtvn)
