The National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) has arrested a Sri Lankan national who has been forcing his Filipina wife to perform live sexual acts online.

NBI Director Dante Gierran identified the arrested suspect as Mohamed Shafri Razeek.

Gierran said Razeek was arrested by operatives of the NBI’s International Operation Division (NBI-IOD) last July 12 at his house in San Jose Del Monte City in Bulacan.

Following his arrest, Razeek was presented to the San Jose Del Monte Prosecutor’s Office for inquest violating Republic Act 9262 (Violence Against Women and Children’s Act) and R.A. 10175 (Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012).

Gierran said the NBI acted on the complaint of Razeek’s wife whose identity has been withheld.

“According to the victim, subject Razeek forced her to perform live sexual intercourse and other sexual acts with him in their residence while being recorded using a mobile phone,” the NBI stated.

The victim also told the NBI that they have been doing the activity since November 2018 and lamented the suspect would hurt her whenever she refuses.

The NBI said foreigners were able to watch the live show after paying the amounts ranging from P1,000 to P2,000.
