    This report describes the effectiveness and current issues of law enforcement against cyber crime in the Phillipines. The report states the following about new trends:'There are around 177 Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in the country today with the major providers offering services at an average rate of P25.00 per hour. Digital subscriber line (DSL), wireless and fixed broadband, cable, satellite Internet facilities are now being offered to the public making access to the internet easily serviceable. The number of Philippine Internet users range to 33.6 million.3 Contributing heavily to its growth are Internet cafes that allow Filipinos who do not own computers to gain access to the facility at an affordable price. An increasing number of schools and small and medium enterprises (SMEs) accessing the Internet contributed to this growth as well.' The Philippines has been regarded as a haven of crime committed online for many years while other countries have developed cyber-warfare. It has only begun its stand when the country received recognition in 2000 as the source of "LOVE BUG" or the "I love you" virus. It has been 13 years since the virus bolstered the insufficiency of the government‟s policies on cybercrime suppression, investigation and prosecution when the author of the virus was released from jail and no case was filed against him for lack of legislation defining the act as a crime and imposing penalty for such commission. On 12 September 2012, the Philippine Congress enacted the Cybercrime Prevention Act to govern crimes committed in the cyberspace. The new law specifies several new acts of cybercrime. Among those prohibited under the law are cybersex, online child pornography, illegal access to computer systems or hacking, online identity theft, and spamming. It increases the penalty for computer-related crimes. However, the law could not take its course in attaining its aim due to the indefinite restraining order issued by the Supreme Court for its implementation until the petitions challenging constitutionality of the law were resolved last February 2014.'

    '750,000. That’s how many paedophiles are online at any moment, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The anonymity of private chat rooms enables those who engage in webcam child sex tourism to avoid detection. Data shows that most log in from Western countries, with 'customers' paying to see underage children perform coerced sexual acts. Given its virtual and real-time design, how do we begin to tackle this growing abuse?'For this episode of The Stream, AlJazeera spoke with:Hans Guyt Project Director, Terre Des HommesAgnes Villegas Psychologist, Visayan ForumMichael Moran Coordinator for Crimes against Children, INTERPOLGeronimo L Sy Assistant Secretary, Department of Justice in the PhilippinesClick here for the episode.

    In recent years Terre des Hommes Netherlands observed the steady rise of a new form of child sexual exploitation. One that is enabled and fuelled by rapid technological advances, increasing global connectivity, persisting poverty rates, and growing disparity in the global distribution of resources. Terre des Hommes Netherlands received alarming signals from collaborating project partners from the Philippines that new commercial child exploitation trades are evolving and spreading parallel to rising global Internet access rates and developments in communications technology.Webcam child sex tourism is evidently growing, closely related to child prostitution, child trafficking and child abuse. What is not clear however, are the psychological and social consequences of this new phenomenon. To date, no research has been done on the psychosocial consequences of webcam sex for children. The aim of this research is therefore to gain more knowledge on the psychosocial consequences of webcam child sex tourism for children and to give insight into the antecedent factors that play a role.
