P03 Joseph Mejia, CIDG investigator, said arrested in the 9:45 p.m. raid were Richard Nitumay, 33, owner of KLM printing press, and Mary Grace Laudit, 29, cashier in a nearby canteen in Dinalupihan.
He said the suspects were inside the closed printing press with a 17-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl, both in the nude.
“Nang butasin ko ang dingding ng printing press, doon ko nakita ang dalawang bata na nagtatalik,” Mejia said.
Laudit was on the upper deck of the double-decked bed while the teenaged pair was below.
Nitumay confirmed that the CIDG raiding team found the two performing the sexual act. “Nagse-sex ang dalawa nang mahuli ng CIDG pero ang babae hindi ko kilala dahil noong gabi ko lang nakita,” he said.
“Huli sa pinagagawang hindi kanais- nais, huli sa akto,” an elder brother of the 17-year-old boy said. He joined the police raiding team.
The brother said one day he saw his kid brother crying and asked him why. “Natatakot daw siya na kapag hindi magpunta sa printing press at magpa-sex video, ie-expose ang dating sex video niya. Parang cybersex na ikakalat ang video sa internet,” he said.
Pitying his brother who is in Grade 9, he reported the matter to the CIDG. He said his brother does not receive compensation from Nitumay for the sex video. “Kung minsan, pamasahe lamang daw,” he said.
He said he was informed that his brother has become close to Nitumay since November last year and received messages to go to the printing press by text.
“Nang malaman ko ang ginagawa sa kapatid ko, gusto ko sugurin at gulpihin si Nitumay pero nasip ko bahala na ang batas. Sana maparusahan, makulong siya para pagdusahan niya,” the elder brother said.
Nitumay denied accusations against him and his companion. He admitted though that he and the 17-year-old boy had a short sexual relationship.
He said that before the CIDG raid, the teenaged boy called him up that he was bringing with him a girl to the printing press. He did not give permission but the boy, he said, was “makulit” and on Monday night insisted in opening the door of the printing press.
Nitumay denied taking video while the 17-year-old boy was having sex with the girl and said he did not gain from it.
Laudit insisted that she only sleeps during the night inside the printing press after working the whole day in a canteen.
“Tulog na ako sa itaas ng double deck at nagulat na lamang ako na may nagse-sex sa ibaba. First time ko lang nakita na may nagse-sex doon,” she said.
The CiDG investigator said Nitumay lured teenagers in believing that they will be turned into models. “Pero ang naging resulta exploitation na parang naging sex den ang shop ng suspek,” Mejia said.
“According to the teenaged boy, parang may mga ka-chat si Nitumay na foreign sites na possible doon ipinapadala ang video tapes,” he said. He said that he does not know yet how much money the suspect receives.
Chief Insp. Reyson Bagain, CIDG provincial chief, said the suspects will be charged in violation of Republic Act 7610 or Child Abuse Law with regards to child prostitution.
