Increasingly large networks behind webcam sex with children

According to the Philippine police, an increasing number of children become victim of webcam child sex tourism. Recent raids on so-called cyberdens prove this. The police uncover increasingly growing networks of families and neighbours who have children perform sex shows in front of the webcam for paying customers, often from Western countries.

De ontdekking van de Filippijnse politie laat eens te meer de noodzaak zien om in actie te komen tegen webcamseks met kinderen.
