For a long time, Philippines has been a hub for heinous perpetrators from illegal drug syndicates, human trafficking, murder and even child pornography.
One of the recent infamous and shocking case was the murder and exploitation of a five-year-old girl in the southern city of the country, allegedly behind the despicable crime was an Australian.
The alleged child molester named Peter Scully may face death penalty in the Philippines, as the crime forced the local police to call for the reinstallment of death penalty in the “conservative” nation.
According to report, the 53-year-old Australian now considered as one of the world’s most depraved child molesters and may be executed by firing squad, was accused of the torture and murder of children for his own sexual gratification.
His alleged connection to the crimes are so bad that Philippine authorities are considering reintroducing the death penalty to execute him over the claim.
Scully, a father of two from Melbourne, is currently detained in a Philippine prison after charged with some of the vilest acts known to humanity, together with some accomplices of the commission of the said crime.
Local media noticed during the court hearings and while being filmed in prison, Scully was caught laughed, joked and acted nonchalant about his alleged crimes.
Even his former counsel revealed some information that the Australian demanded the prison management for special treatment.
Atty. Alejandra Jose Pallugna, Scully’s former lawyer, has revealed that his client treats jail like a holiday and has demanded a mobile phone and fresh beef, pork and chicken.
The pampering time for Scully may not be forever after the government leadership shift under President Rodrigo Duterte, who actively campaigning the reintroducing of death penalty for heinous crimes in the Philippines. With this penology and measure, the officials are considering australian to a firing squad as punishment.
It is the fate of one victim in particular that has prompted appalled Filipino prosecutors to call for Scully’s execution.
Philippine police said the five-year-old girl was hung upside down by Scully as he raped and tortured her with two accomplices.
The crime was recorded in videos and then sold to paedophiles around the world. The country’s national police also said it is not the first time Scully committed similar crimes.
Manila police said the suspect also sexually abused a baby, and filmed his torture and rape of young girls as he made them dig their own graves.
Scully also buried a 11-year-old under the floor of a house he was renting after making a film of him raping her and strangling her to death, says police official.
What really shocking in the case? Scully, per se, did not commit the series of tortured-murder case in the country alone, he was charged together with two Filipina accomplices.
According to the authority, one of the co-perpetrator of the Australian is Carmen Ann Alvarez, who helped him film and assault young girls before leading police to a girl’s body under the floorboards.
Also helped Scully in other child molestation act was Liezyl Magallo, the suspect’s co-horts.
Currently, Scully faces 75 charges with his co-accused, who include four men, Christian Rouche, Alexander Lao, and Marshall Ruskin and Haniel Caetano de Oliveira.
According to Chief Philippine prosecutor Jaime Umpa, Scully was the mastermind of an extreme child sex and torture video syndicate based in the southern cities of Surigao, Cagayan de Oro and Malaybalay in the Philippines.
Philippine National Police (PNP) was shocked to discover that Scully operates a dark website called “No Limits Fun”, a web platform where the paedophile uploaded all videos before his viewers all around the globe.
PNP said Peter Scully’s most depraved video entitled “daisy’s destruction”, film personally-captured by the suspect, shows the kidnapped children were pushed to have sex with each other.
In the initial police investigation, Scully lured children away from impoverished parents with the promise of food and education or used teenage girl accomplices to kidnap them.
He then drugged the children and made films of him raping and torturing them for an international paedophile ring.
The secret child pornography site on the Dark Web called “No Limits Fun”, the Australian sold the videos for up to $10,000 per view.
It is this film which shocked even seasoned child trafficking investigators, a Filipino police chief calling it “the worst we have encountered in our years campaigning against child pornography”.
Daisy’s destruction film featured the girl victim called Barbie, who was taken from her family at the age of five by one of Scully’s cohorts, Liezyl Magallo.
Margallo and another young girl Carmen Ann Alvarez are also facing charges of child exploitation.
Alvarez is said to have been taken in by Scully as his girlfriend after he met her as a 14-year-old prostitute in the southern region of the country.
In the said “drastic” film, with Barbie playing “Daisy”, Alvarez and Margallo participate in the child’s torture and sexual assault.
Also featured in the film was the little girl screams and cries as she is beaten, raped, tortured and defiled by Scully and his two masked accomplices.
The suspect utilizes hot wax, a lighter, barbed wire, submersion in water and sex aids.
PNP believed that Scully sold his videos to customers in Germany, the US and Brazil.
The crime was not put into attention of authority, until two of his victims, cousins Queenie and Daisy, aged 9 and 12, escaped.
The two victims said Alvarez offered them food and shelter, the girls were taken in, raped and tortured and held captive wearing dog collars and chains for five days,
Alvarez, also known as Mistress Scully, order them perform sexual acts upon each other while Scully filmed it.
Perpetrators also recorded poor victims digging their own graves while being continually raped.
With continuous guilt over the crime, Alvarez reportedly let them go.
Meanwhile, last February 2016, Scully was arrested with the help of Australian Federal Police and Philippine police.
Alvarez led the operatives to the apartment where the 11-year-old was buried and to other addresses where Scully raped and tortured his child victims in order to collect evidences to establish against the suspects.
As of posting, Scully has pleaded not guilty to the rape and trafficking of two teenage girls and is being held in to custody in Cagayan de Oro City jail.
Philippine police is currently doing thorough investigation and running after with the other respondent of the case.
