In a statement today (Thursday, January 18) NBI Director Dante Gierran said the unnamed complainant — ‘Alice’ — turned to the police after Bukhari uploaded her nude photos on the internet.

The suspect is a resident of San Mateo, Rizal, who works in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Alice told how she came to know Bukhari by chatting on Facebook Messenger, and they went on to have a long-distance relationship.

Mr Guerran described how during this time there were occasions when Alice showed her private parts to Bukhari “out of love”.

He said: “Every time they engaged in video calling, Bukhari was demanding complainant to show her private parts, which the latter did out of love for the subject, without realising the possible consequences.”

However, their relationship broke down after Alice discovered that Bukhari was already married to another Filipina.

Despite being caught out, Bukhari tried to convince Alice to get back together with him. She refused, telling him that she had found a new boyfriend.

Bukhari then warned Alice that he would share her nude photos unless she broke up with her new boyfriend and returned to him.

“Complainant ignored the threat until Bukhari, out of anger, sent the photos to her new boyfriend and workmates,” Mr Gierran said.

“He again tried to talk with the complainant, requesting a meet up and sex in exchange of the deletion of all the complainant’s nude photos. At this point, complainant sought the help of NBI.”

NBI Cybercrime Division agents arrested Bukhari along Timog Avenue in Quezon City on Tuesday (January 16.

He has been charged under the Anti-Violence Against Women and their Children Act of 2004 (RA 9262), the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012 (RA 10175), and the Anti-Photo and Video Voyeurism Act of 2009 (RA 9995).
