Description
CEBU, Philippines – Three girls were rescued from a cybersex operation in Barangay Cogon, Cordova, Cebu Tuesday afternoon.
Three other women, who coached the kids to perform sexual acts in front of the computer with camera, were detained.

The operation was headed by members of the Provincial Intelligence Branch (PIB) and non-government organization, Children’s Legal Bureau. The group served the search warrant to the suspects Marilou Tabada and Salome Ligan.
Tabada, who was the owner of the house, was not around when they served the warrant. Ligan was there but was able to escape because authorities immediately ran to rescue the children.

All were caught in the act performing nude in front of the webcam.
The children were 17, 12, and 9 years old.
Supt. Rodulfo Albotra, PIB Chief said they conducted surveillance for 2 months after they received information from a walk-in informant regarding the cybersex operation in the house.
He said the house was allegedly intentionally built for cybersex.

It is located far from other houses in the barangay and has wireless internet connection used by a single set of computer with webcam.
Albotra said young girls would go to the house every afternoon.

When they do their services in front of the webcam, the adults who supervise them would close all the windows and doors.
The three other women present during the raid were caught coaching the children what to do in front of the webcam.

Among the adults was the mother of the 9-year-old girl.

The minors were immediately turned over to the Department of Social Welfare and Development while the 3 adults were detained at the Cebu Provincial Police Office.
Last month, also in Cordova town, authorities were able to rescue 6 young siblings from a cybersex operation.
A qualified trafficking case was filed against the parents of the children.
