QUEZON CITY – The Philippine National Police urges citizens who have been victims of cybercrime to report the crime to the police.
Just like the 21-year-old woman who went to the police after experiencing trauma following an incident with her former lover.
The young woman claims that the suspect spread on social media her sensitive photos after she refused to give what his ex-boyfriend wanted.
“Hindi ko kaya ibigay ang pagkababae ko sa kanya… pag di daw ako makipagbalikan sa kanya yun daw gagawin nya sakin papatayin nya mga mahal ko sa buhay,” the victim said. (I couldn’t give myself to him. He said if I refuse to go back to him, he will kill all my loved ones.)
After receiving the report, the PNP Anti-Cybercrime Group (PNP-ACG) immediately conducted an entrapment operation against the 24-year-old suspect identified as Reynaldo Morales.
Morales was arrested in Cubao, Quezon City last Wednesday.
“Ang ifi-file natin sa kanya ay grave coercion in relation to the conversation may pananakot talaga,” PNP-ACG Spokesperson PSupt. Jay Guillermo said. (We will file charges for grave coercion in relation to the conversation. There really have been threats.)
The suspect, however, denied the allegations.
“Yung sinsabi nilang kalaswaan hindi totoo yun… hindi ako mamatay tao,” Morales said. (The lasciviousness they are talking about is not true. I am not a killer.)

The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and the Presidential Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) have arrested two high-ranking officials of the National Museum.
The two were involved in extortion in exchange of permits issued by the agency, particularly on treasure hunting.
According to the PACC, the two officials had been extorting money from the complainant who has a pending application for treasure hunting permit at the agency.
The two were asking for P120,000 from the applicant for a permit that only costs P3,000.
“So pumunta sa amin iyong complainant then we set up this entrapment operations with the NBI. Malaki hong halaga iyan for these permits dahil legal fees hindi naman aabot yan ng ganoon kalaki,” said PACC Commissioner Greco Belgica.
The two were identified as Ernesto Toribio Jr, chief of the National Museum Treasure Hunting Section, and Angel Toribio, acting Director and Curator II of the museum’s Cultural Properties Division.
The PACC believes that there is a possibility that extortion has already become rampant at the National Museum as there are no clear guidelines on the process of application permits such as in treasure hunting.
With this, the PACC is urging the National Museum administration to streamline its requirements for permit applications.
PACC will file bribery, extortion, and conspiracy against the two officials. (with details from Mai Bermudez) /mbmf
Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso on Monday dismissed from post the Manila Traffic and Parking Bureau (MTBP) enforcer who was caught in the act of extortion on CCTV.
This was after a netizen posted on her Facebook account an enforcer who seemed to be extorting money from a motorist.
Seen on the video was the companion of the motorist who was counting money to be given to the said enforcer.
During Monday’s flag-raising ceremony at the Manila City Hall, Moreno warned the MTBP that the whole team will be sacked if they will not present the said enforcer to him.
The group then presented Ricardo Galit, the enforcer seen on the video, to the office of the mayor at around noon.
Moreno confiscated Galit’s ID and vest bearing the insignia of the MTPB.
The local chief executive stressed that Galit will never get the chance to once again be part of the MTBP and that he will be facing charges for his illegal activity. (with report from April Cenedoza) /mbmf
