Chief Superintendent Samuel Pagdilao Jr., director of the PNP Criminal Investigation and Detection Group (CIDG), said cyber-crime mafias, mostly foreigners, have established their base of operations in the Philippines. Pagdilao said cyber-crime operators have taken advantage of the PNP’s “organizational and technical incapability” to fight cyber crimes.
While cyber-crime syndicates use sophisticated technology, he rued that “law enforcers in the country are lagging behind in terms of training and equipment.”
Pagdilao asked Congress to prioritize passing the proposed cyber-crime prevention law to address the country’s legal inadequacies. He also asked the PNP to support the organizational and technical capability build-up of the CIDG’s cyber-crime unit. Pagdilao said foreign mafias have been running cyber-sex dens and cyber-pornography operations in the country. He said Korean mafias have been behind illegal online gambling and credit card fraud operations in the country.
Pagdilao said their recent arrest here of a Korean hacker wanted by Interpol revealed that “Korean cyber-crime syndicates are operating almost unhampered” in the country.
