MANILA, Philippines — State weather service PAGASA forecasts ‘Hagibis’ to likely enter the Philippine Area of Responsibility (PAR) by Friday (October 11).

As of 11:00 AM, PAGASA monitored the weather system at 2,420km east of Central Luzon, packed with maximum sustained winds of 200kph and gustiness of 245kph.

It is moving towards the west-northwest direction at 30kph.

PAGASA said typhoon Hagibis is less likely to make landfall in the country while moving towards south of Japan.

As announced, the country is on the transition period towards having a cooler temperature or the so-called ‘amihan’ season.

Throughout Tuesday, Metro Manila and the rest of the country will have partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers due to localized thunderstorms.

Meanwhile, the northeasterly surface windflow is seen prevailing over Northern Luzon.

Aileen Cerrudo   •   August 17, 2019

The Women and Children Protection Center–Mindanao Field Unit (WCPC-MFU) has arrested a 22-year-old woman exploiting her younger sisters and daughter in online trafficking.

There were reports about the suspect’s illegal online activities last February this year which prompted an investigation by the authorities.

The WCPC-MFU was granted a warrant by the court to search the suspect’s electronic devices for evidence of online sexual exploitation of children (OSEC). The suspect’s identity was not disclosed for the safety of the victims.

Investigation showed the suspect offered to sexually abuse her sisters and daughter and livestream it in exchange for money.

Authorities rescued the suspect’s sisters aged 13 and 15 and her 4-year-old daughter from their home in Barobo, Surigao del Sur on Friday (Aug 16).

Chief of WCPC-MFU Col. Christine Tan reiterates their continuous effort to stop the exploitation of children online.

“To those who are doing this crime or have plans to do it for easy money, you cannot hide. We know how to get you,” she said.

The victims are currently in the custody of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD). The suspect will be charged with violation of the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act or Republic Act 9208 (as amended by RA 10364), among other violations. —AAC
