Above all, a 42-year-old Norwegian, Ronny Bratlistuen, has a problem. Moreover, his 22-year-old Filipina partner, Jessebelle Cometa, does too; both arrested for alleged human trafficking. On Wednesday, April 29, 2020, the dirty duo received a visit by the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG) of Negros Oriental. Shut down was their alleged cybersex den at Barangay Candau-ay, Dumaguete City. The raid also rescued four women, including a four-year-old child.
At least a United States citizen didn’t embarrass the expat community this time. Furthermore, the Norwegian and the Filipina are both excellent examples of human depravity.
Alleged Dumaguete City Cybersex Den Run by Norwegian National Busted
A 27-year-old complainant went to the Dumaguete City Police Station on April 26. The Filipina told the police about the couple’s alleged cybersex operations. According to the accuser, her “friend,” Cometa, said she could earn P10,000 per week working for her. Now 10,000 pesos is about 200 US dollars. That’s mucho money in the Philippines for a weekly salary.
Frankly, that should have tipped the woman off that her job probably didn’t involve something legal.
In contrast, the woman’s salary was only 300 pesos a week, six US dollars. For those six dollars a week the Filipina had to pose naked and do sexual stimulation shows for foreigners online. Therefore, she went to the police. Hell hath no fury like a woman not paid in full.
During my time in the military, you didn’t mess with two things. A soldier’s chow and a soldier’s pay. The female sex slave soldier had gone AWOL and thankfully snitched on her “friend.”
Sex Toys, Laptops, and Passports
During the police search, four females (two of them a mother and daughter), were rescued. Thankfully, the Norwegian and Filipina perverts didn’t directly involve the four-year-old in their operation.
Because of the search, the police operatives found numerous sex toys, headsets, six laptops, and three passports. Allegedly used for the Dumaguete City cybersex den was a desktop computer.
Police Lieutenant Colonel Ariel Hueca is head of the CIDG-Negros Oriental. He said that the couple has been allegedly engaging in the illegal activity for three years now in various municipalities in the province.
Hueca reported that the pair stayed in Dumaguete City where they had been operating for about a year.
Victims Allegedly Forced to Use Shabu
The complainant also alleged that they were forced to use “shabu” (“meth”) before their performance. However, no illegal drugs were found during the operation except for a lighter and a strip of aluminum foil.
Hueca said that they are not yet sure if there were other female victims in the house. Only four of them were seen during the raid.
He also said that the child was not directly involved in the alleged cybersex activities. However, she told the police that she could sometimes hear her mother talking to someone in the adjacent room.
The couple now will face charges for violation of Republic Act (RA) 9208 or the “Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act of 2003” in relation to RA 10175 or the “Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012.”
The rescued victims are now under the custody of the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD.)
