SHOCKING! Lockdown forces poor parents in Philippines to live-stream sex acts on kids for £10 a time

THE Coronavirus lockdown is fuelling a sick trade in live-streamed child sex abuse in the Phillipines - funded by UK paedophiles.
Poverty and starvation have made the situation so dire in this place that parents are sexually abusing their own children and streaming them online for just Rs 960.
According to a report in The Sun, there is a high demand for live streaming and child pornography from the Philippines in the UK. Most businesses in the Philippines are closed due to the lockdown. So parents are sexually abusing their own children.
Views of the live videos - where sick viewers direct poverty stricken parents to abuse kids as young as three for as little as £10 - have doubled globally since the start of the pandemic.
The Internet Watch Foundation has reported 8.8million UK attempts to access child sex abuse videos in lockdown.
The UK ranks third among global consumers of sex abuse videos, despite making up just one per cent of the world population.
John Tanagho, whose organisation International Justice Mission tracks down abused children in the Philippines and rescues them, warned the global pandemic was a “perfect storm” for paedophile rings to grow their sick business online.
"We're talking about on-demand, child sexual abuse and exploitation that is being livestreamed from traffickers in the Philippines to child sex offenders around the world, primarily in Western countries," he told the File on Four.
Paedophiles log in and issue specific instructions.
"The sex offenders go online and they connect with these traffickers and then they'll direct them and pay them to sexually abuse children of specific ages in specific ways and to livestream that abuse," said Tanagho.
