Disturbing images show a pedophile beauty pageant in which Filipino girls as young as 11 are lined up in a cybersex den for pedophiles all over the world to pick from to abuse on webcam.
According to Daily Mail, the little girls are forced to smile as they are raped on camera while voyeuristic pedophiles tell their abusers what to do to them. After they grow tired of the “show,” some of the pedophiles fly to the dirt-poor slums of Iligan, in the Philippines, and pay top dollar to abuse the girls themselves.
The abuse was exposed by Belgian journalist Peter Bridge, whose name has been changed to protect his identity. Bridge spent two years investigating the suppliers of online child sex abuse in the Philippines before exposing them in the documentary Children of the Cam.
Posing as a pedophile, Bridge gained the trust of the cybersex den ringleaders and then travelled there himself. He then described what happened next…
“They gave me a selection of girls to choose from, between the ages of 11 and 17,” Bridge recounted. “I could choose any girls I wanted. I told them I was interested in having six girls, two every night – 15 and 17, 11, 13 and then younger. They agreed.”
The girls were later sent to his hotel room, which had been wired with hidden cameras. Once the girls were inside, Bridge tried to find out as much as he could about their lives, and he was stunned by what they said.
“I found out that some of the older girls were already recruiting younger girls into the industry. Girls as young as 12 work independently recruiting friends. It is contact with the predators that turns them into really educated abusers.
They learn how to receive the money, how to do these things unnoticed, how to make contacts. So they are really raised to abuse by the predators. They come from the US, Europe, Australia, Canada and Korea.
There was a girl who was 15. She wants to become a school teacher. Her sister is 13. They called me and the sister was sitting there with an eight-year-old girl on her lap and she just asked me ‘what do you want me to do with her?
Doing this sort of work is traumatising. But for these girls it’s just normal. They have been raised in a sea of abuse. And they don’t know that it is abuse anymore.”
“I got access to the accounts of the group I had infiltrated.
I could see the client list there, it was a group of about 200 people. I saw a British guy, he was a veteran, he knew the group very well. He was an instructor, giving instructions while the abuse was happening.
There was a couple with a child, she was about 11 years old, and he was telling her what to do. Telling her she had to smile while she was doing it [sex acts], stuff like that.
But this was just one group. There are many, many more.”
