NBI ordered to hunt down more people behind ‘Daisy’ video

/ 06:30 PM September 13, 2016

THE Department of Justice (DOJ) has ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) to locate other conspirators of Peter Gerard Scully, the man behind the “Destruction of Daisy” physical and sex abuse video of children, known in the international community as “the worst form of child sexual and physical abuse.”

In the same resolution ordering the filing of 69 criminal cases against Scully, his live-in partner Liezyl Margallo, German national Christian Johann Rothe, Alexander Lao, Ma. Dorothea V. Chia, Haniel Caetano De Oliveira and Marshal Ruskin, the DOJ also ordered the NBI to coordinate with the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) and take custody of the minors and provide them with post-care treatment.

“[The NBI is ordered] to conduct further investigation as to the other involved conspirators/cohorts whether local or foreign nationals/residents, tagged and/or implicated, directly or indirectly in the evidence at hand including the possible identification of the; a. cybernames (usernames/user IDs, email addresses); b. contact numbers; c. cyberlocations (including Internet Protocol addresses and recorded places/sites if any); d. websites and e. web applications,” the DOJ said.

The DOJ noted that based on the NBI-Cybercrime Division digital forensic reports, there are still many victims of cybertrafficking yet to be rescued and be given immediate assistance.

The DOJ added that cyber perverts are still feasting on the nude videos of at least five minor victims including that of an 18-month old baby.

It also ordered an investigation of foreign nationals Ingo Geres, Christian Bogo and Jens Van Dijk whose names appeared in the records of the case.

Scully and the other accused were arrested last year.

Scully has a pending case before the Cagayan de Oro Regional Trial Court Branch 37 for the sexual abuse of two girls aged 9 and 12 known as the “Apovel case” because it was committed at Apovel Subdivision in Barangay Buluan in Cagayan. The two victims were able to escape and narrate their ordeal to their parents.

Scully was able to lure the parents of their victims under the guise of taking good care of them, feeding them and sending them to school. Instead, the victims, whom they call “little ones,” were exploited, abused and molested.

The 69 criminal cases – eight counts of qualified trafficking in persons committed by a syndicate,five counts of syndicated child pornography, nine counts of child abuse, five counts of indecent shows, obscene exhibitions and publications, four counts of Child pornography under the Cybercrime Prevention Act, 25 counts of photo and video Voyeurism and 13 counts of rape – will be filed in various courts before the Cagayan de Oro City, Surigao City and Malaybalay City./rga
