Please help! I had a foreigner boyfriend before but I broke up with him because he wanted to have two other mistresses to live with me. I was the promised bride but the condition was that as stated. When I didn't say yes to what he was asking, he said that he would leave me. Nevertheless, I broke up with him eventually because of that. He took photos of mine having no clothes on, and malicious pictures and videos when we still have a relationship, and now he threatens me that he'll post it on the internet and he will send it to my family and relatives if i won't get back with him. Please help me. I don't want to be those things to be out in public. He's coming back here in the Philippines on June 18, and he wants to get back with me on that day or else he would do what he plans to do. I really need to know what should I do. What legal actions should I make? Please help...

Inform the NBI about his plan and give his full details and his arrival etc and what he is planning to do! Since he is a foreigner to the country he will face cyber crime if he do anything silly like that, Tulfo will get him! Evil or Very Mad

3 Electronic Crime on Mon Jun 16, 2014 10:14 am

I am actually a "foreigner' but please don't hold that against me Smile

I'm speaking "internationally" as I have experienced something like this similarly so I'm merely passing on what I have learned.

Firstly what he is threatening to do constitutes an "electronic crime" and an electronic crime is considered to have been committed at the point that it is broadcast and/or at the point it is received so if you are receiving his electronic crime on an electronic device here in Philippines then he is committing a crime here in Philippines.

But the trouble with electronic crimes is proof, did he actually commit it or did he have those pictures stolen, was his password hacked etc. etc. etc. and very few police forces will even touch it because it becomes far too time consuming at public expense, it is very difficult to prove an offence, and rarely if ever does it result in a court conviction.

Now if he's got the ability to buy his own domain and put your pics or whatever on that domain then a "whois" search of that domain should identify him as the owner of it, that still doesn't prove, in the eyes of a court, that he owns it and/or that he committed any electronic crime but, perhaps, in your favour is that the Philippines police are so corrupt just have a word with the police to lock him up for a few days.

But normally such idiots post such pics and writings on farcebook or other similar websites and, particularly, if the pics are lewd then you can complain to farcebook or whoever that (1) The pics are lewd and/or (2) He is posting your pics without your permission.

With our new cyber crime law in the Philippines nothing is impossible my Dear! The NBI can even search through the stuff people already deleted to get the proof of the person who posted malicious stuff originally. And yes! Foreigner who step in the Philippines who has bad intention with Filipinos, will be lucky to get out without paying the consequences. If he is not an important person he can easily disappear, unless someone claims for him like this case.

What he would be doing would be committing the crime of "harassment" electronically.

Now this makes for interesting reading:

What is VAW?

The UN Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women (1993) defines violence against women (VAW) as, “any act of gender‑based violence that results in, or is likely to result  in, physical, sexual or psychological harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occurring in public and private life. Gender-based violence is any violence inflicted on women because of their sex.”

The Philippine definition as contained in Republic Act 9262 (Anti-Violence Against Women and Their Children Act of 2004) states VAW as "any act or a series of acts committed by any person against a woman who is his wife, former wife, or against a woman with whom the person has or had a sexual or dating relationship, or with whom he has a common child, or against her child whether legitimate or illegitimate, within or without the family abode, which result in or is likely to result in physical, sexual, psychological harm or suffering, or economic abuse including threats of such acts, battery, assault, coercion, harassment or arbitrary deprivation of liberty.

It includes, but is not limited to, the following acts:

   "Physical violence" refers to acts that include bodily or physical harm;
   "Sexual violence" refers to an act which is sexual in nature, committed against a woman or her child. It includes, but is not limited to:
       rape, sexual harassment, acts of lasciviousness, treating a woman or her child as a sex object, making demeaning and sexually suggestive remarks, physically attacking the sexual parts of the victim’s body, forcing her/him to watch obscene publications and indecent shows or forcing the woman or her child to do indecent acts and/or make films thereof, forcing the wife and mistress/lover to live in the conjugal home or sleep together in the same room with the abuser;
acts causing or attempting to cause the victim to engage in any sexual activity by force, threat of force, physical or other harm or threat of physical or other harm or coercion;
prostituting the woman or her child.

"Psychological violence" refers to acts or omissions causing or likely to cause mental or emotional suffering of the victim such as but not limited to intimidation, harassment, stalking, damage to property, public ridicule or humiliation
