NBI awaits ‘sex slavery’
complaint vs. policeman
The National Bureau of Investigation is still waiting for the statement of the victim, who claimed that her step-father, who is a policeman, had made her a sex slave.
NBI-Bacolod head Fernando Lavin said that after the victim has executed her formal complaints, they will issue a subpoena against the policeman so he could air his side.
Lavin said that they are coordinating with the Social Worker of the Department of Social Welfare and Development so they could meet with the complainant and get her statement.
He added that they already have copies of the results of the victim’s medical examination, which they will use in filing the case.
Accompanied by her biological father, the complainant, 17, sought the help of the NBI last week, claiming that her stepfather, a policeman, had made her a sex slave for almost 12 years now in their residence in a town in Negros Occidental.
The victim, whose name is being withheld by the DAILY STAR alleged that her stepfather, who is assigned in a town of Negros Occidental, started molesting her when she was 6 years old.
The teenager added that she had told her mother about her plight, but she would get mad, so she went to her father, whom she had not seen since she was a child.*APN
