Three Australian men have been arrested over their alleged roles in facilitating child abuse in the Philippines, during a month of major AFP-led breakthroughs in the Asian country.

A mother arrested in that case had allowed four of her own children to be abused.

‘The AFP and its international partners are working tirelessly to target anyone who seeks to exploit children, and we are not distracted by the demands of the COVID pandemic.’

Two of the Philippines-based police teams charged with investigating child sexual abuse are led by mothers.
