Grandma made kids do slave-like sex with her
They were tricked into believing that slave-like sex acts were normal.
A 53-year-old grandmother on Friday admitted forcing two of her daughters and grandchildren to perform horrific sexual acts via the webcam before foreign clients, showing them that if their grandmother and aunts can do it, they can, too.
The grandmother, who was arrested on Friday in their rented house in Bacolor, Pampanga, will be charged with several counts of statutory rape apart from human trafficking, according to lawyer Eric Nuqui, head of the National Bureau of Investigation Anti-Human Trafficking Division.
Nuqui said the information about the family enterprise was reported to them by Belgian police following the arrest of one of their clients in Brussels, Belguim.
“The grandmother is liable for sexual assault based on the video they have uploaded on the Internet where the girls performed oral sex on her,” Nuqui said, describing the lewd acts the young girls were asked to perform in front of a webcam.
The young girls, now ages 8 and 9, cried and asked for their grandmother when they were escorted out of their rooms by NBI agents who rescued them on Friday, he said.
Nuqui said that based on the evidence gathered, the grandmother herself sexually assaulted the girls when they were around 4 to 5 years old.
An aunt of the young girls who was also arrested admitted that she and her older sister also indulged in cyberporn activities to pay for their education.
“We were forced to do it before to finance our education, but now that we have graduated, we stopped,” the aunt, now a nurse, said.
The suspects did not resist arrest and admitted to doing the illegal activities.
Request of clients
“We do what the costumers request. It was not difficult for my grandchildren to obey me because they see us and they think it’s normal,” the grandmother said.
She said she met the customers in a chat room where they discussed payments and specific requests.
Nuqui said that among the film clips provided to the NBI by its foreign counterpart showed the underage girls being fed human feces.
The grandmother said it was the request of some clients that the young girls eat human waste. But she said it was fake poop made of chocolate.
According to the head of the homeowners’ association, the suspects who just moved in always had visitors accompanied by children.
“They always have visitors. I even spoke to some of the children because I wanted to know why they were not in school,” the neighbor, who asked not to be named, told the Inquirer.
Agent Janet Francisco, executive officer of the division, expressed alarm over the children’s psychological state due to their exposure to the illegal sex trade.
“Apart from the physical well-being of the victims, we are also worried about the emotional and psychological state of the victims because they might think it’s normal and nothing is wrong with it,” Francisco said.
Francisco, who received the information about the cyber child porn, also said that there were other young girls victimized by the illegal trade.
“There were victims other than her grandchildren. We are still in the process of identifying and locating them,” Francisco said.
She said the rescued girls will be placed in a shelter and will undergo counseling.
