The Department of Justice reported that Peter Gerard Scully, the creator of “Destruction of Daisy” and a pedophile, together with his alleged cohorts, is facing 69 criminal charges, including qualified trafficking in persons and rape.
Probable cause to charge Scully was found by Asst. State Prosecutor Jinky Dedumo. The charges are the following: 8 counts of qualified trafficking in persons; 9 counts of child abuse; 5 counts of indecent shows, obscene exhibitions and publications; 5 counts of syndicated child pornography; 4 counts of child pornography; 25 counts of photo and video voyeurism; 6 counts of rape by sexual assault (instrument or object rape); and 2 counts of rape by sexual intercourse (organ rape).
Meanwhile, Liezyl Margallo, Scully’s former live-in partner, is facing 8 counts of qualified trafficking; 9 counts of child abuse; 5 counts of indecent shows, obscene exhibitions and publications; 5 counts of syndicated child pornography; 25 counts of photo and video voyeurism; and 5 counts of rape by sexual assault (instrument or object rape).
“After a careful perusal and scrutiny of the records of the instant case, and based on the evidence thus submitted, respondents are criminally liable for committing a series of punishable acts relating to and/or involving ‘Online Sexual Exploitation of Children’,” the 151-page resolution read.
In March 2015, the National Bureau of Investigation- Anti-Human Trafficking Division (NBI-AHTRAD) file a complaint against Scully and Margallo for the alleged sexual and physical abuse, including torture, of young Filipino girls aged 1-13 years old.
The criminal offenses were committed in Cagayan de Oro City from April 2011 up to September 2014. Using a digital camera, Scully recorded the scenes and uploaded the videos on a porn website.
“[T]here exists probable cause to charge respondents Scully and Margallo, in conspiracy with each other and confederating with other cohorts. Scully and Margallo groomed the minor children by making them watch sex videos and photographs through the house computers to prepare them for sexual activity, thereby subjecting the said minor children to conditions prejudicial to their growth and development,” as read by the resolution.
Scully was arrested by NBI agents last February 20, 2015 in the house he was renting in Barangay Violeta, Malaybalay, Bukidnon.
His ex-partner, Margallo, was the one who informed NBI on the crimes committed by Sully. She claimed that Scully sexually and physically abused the girls, and killed and buried one of them in the house they rented together in Surigao.
NBI described the scenes in the videos uploaded by Scully as the most horrifying child abuse in the history of their investigations.
