Cyber sex in china webcam
The 53-year-old suspect originally from Peoria, Illinois, has been in the Philippines since 2000.
David Timothy Deakin's arrest April 20, and the rescue of two girls, is one of the largest seizures of potentially illicit digital content in the Philippines.
LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Technological advances, including the spread of high-speed internet, have fueled a surge in the Philippines of the sexual abuse of children as young as one years old in front of a live webcam, an anti-slavery group said.
Victims of this crime are often much younger than those trapped in other forms of modern slavery, said International Justice Mission (IJM), which started a campaign this week to raise awareness about cybersex trafficking.
Authorities are reviewing about 30 hard drives, as well as numerous computers, to find suspected buyers and victims.
Deakin has been charged with cybercrime, child pornography, child abuse and child trafficking.
