A string of criminal charges, including qualified trafficking and murder, has been filed before the Department of Justice against an Australian national who was accused of killing a child and orchestrating an international pedophile ring in the country.
The National Bureau of Investigation charged Peter Gerald Scully, 50 years old, of committing various crimes, such as violation of the Expanded Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act of 2012, Article 248 of the Revised Penal Code (RPC) or murder, child abuse, statutory rape and violation of the Cybercrime Prevention Act.
Scully was arrested by NBI agents at his residence in Malaybalay, Bukidnon last February 20 by virtue of a warrant of arrest issued by Cagayan de Oro Regional Trial Court Judge Jose Escobido for rape, illegal detention, physical harm, human trafficking and cybersex operation. He allegedly used minors ages ranging from one to 14 years by selling pornographic images and videos streaming to his European clients.
According to NBI Anti-Human Trafficking Division (AHTRAD) chief Czar Eric Nuqui, Scully had been the subject of an international investigation on human trafficking after police investigators in the Netherlands found out about Scully’s activities.
The Australian supposedly uploaded on the Internet videos of himself having sex with young girls.
Nuqui said the NBI has been investigating Scully only this year following a tip from the Dutch police.
