Danish TV2 documentary on online child sexual abuse airs tonight.

In a disturbing programme Danish TV2 reports on the rapidly growing form of child abuse that is online child sexual exploitation (OSCE) whereby mostly western men pay to direct and watch live stream sexual abuse of minors as young as 4 years old in the Philippines.

The researchers for the programme liaised with Belgian undercover journalist Peter Dupont who has spent the last 3 years working on this issue. He helped them identify 3 Danish citizens who are regular "customers" of these child cybersex "shows" (as they are referred to in the Philippines). The documentary makers travelled to the Philippines to interview a social worker who manages a shelter for child victims of this abuse who have been rescued during raids on "cyberdens" and taken into care. She tells of the depraved requests and commands that children comply with during live streaming of a "show". The documentary makers also interview a 16 year old girl there who has been involved in cybersex since childhood. 

The documentary will be followed on Friday 3rd February by a news item on TV2 on the Sweetie Project including an interview with Hans Guyt, director.
