National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) personnel rescued 15 female masseuses who allegedly offered “extra service” to their clients in Manila. The women are said to be booked through social media.
As reported by John Consulta on GMA News “24 Oras” on Wednesday, four women in the hotel lobby were the first to be rescued by the NBI.
It is said that the women are masseuses who offer “door-to-door” services but end up in prostitution because of the “extra service” offer.
“Wala silang mine-maintain na spa clinic, pero mine-maintain nila ‘yung mga babae sa isang lugar at doon mayroong receptionist na siya ang tumatanggap ng mga pera o bayad doon sa mga babae na nai-book sa social media platform,” according to Atty. Janet Francisco, NBI anti-human trafficking division chief.
(They don’t maintain a spa clinic, but they do ‘maintain’ the women somewhere and there is a receptionist who accepts money or payments from those women who are booked on the social media platform.)
“The only thing you have to do is to prepare the hotel or place where the massage will take place and that’s it. Dadalin na doon ‘yung masehista o ‘yung victim at hatid-sundo ito ng inupahan nila na driver,” the official added.
Female masseuses allegedly offering ‘extra service’ rescued
Meanwhile, 11 female masseuses who also allegedly offer “extra service” were rescued at a spa in Manila.
“Matagal na itong ginagawa, itong facilitator na ito, at dahil dito ay kakasuhan namin siya ng violation ng anti-human trafficking in relation doon sa cyber prevention act dahil nga ‘yung pag o-offer nila ay ginagawa nila through Facebook or other social media platforms,” the official said.
(This facilitator has been doing this for a long time, and because of this we will charge him with violation of anti-human trafficking concerning the cyber prevention act because what they offer they do through Facebook or other social media platforms.)
