Jeff Nagle, the Australian chief executive of International Justice Mission, is familiar with the raid."Upon the arrest of Kyle Dawson and the seizure of his computer equipment they were able to identify the location of some of that live-streaming abuse in the Philippines," he told 7.30."Kyle Dawson had recorded those shows to watch at a later date and had done that with the intent to share or watch again that there was stored material that could be used as evidence."The AFP tipped off authorities in the Philippines and together with International Justice Mission launched a sting operation by posing as a customer."That's when the police started to go into the house and rescue the children," Mr Inocencio said."They're being provided with psychological care, especially trauma-informed care."Joann is now being prosecuted for qualified trafficking — basically this is the law against trafficking against persons in the Philippines."In July, Dawson was sentenced to five years in prison at the Brisbane District Court.
The Australian Federal Police is concerned demand for child abuse material is increasing across the country.
“There’s even talk of a live action RWBY movie,” Jones adds, “Which would be amazing.” The pair were among several Rooster Teeth personalities recently in Australia for RTX Sydney – a dedicated fan convention for the company and its creations – which was held at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre early this month.
“Every time we come to Australia there’s just so much passion,” Jones says.
Live-streaming has been identified as a priority area to target."In 2014 we received about 4,500 referrals of child exploitation material and in 2015 it was 11,000," Justine Saunders said."So, this is a global trend."It's not hopeless but I won't deny this is alarming."The nature of the referrals, the increasing challenges associated with the use of the internet and the anonymity associated with the live-streaming makes this very, very difficult but I won't deny that and certainly we are making in-roads." One way authorities are doing that is by chasing the money trail.
Profiling by the financial intelligence organisation Austrac has resulted in live-streaming convictions of Dominic Patrick Hickey and Patrick Goggins."Financial intelligence is a really valuable part of the puzzle for our law enforcement and intelligence partners but it's a part of a puzzle," Austrac's national manager of intelligence Dr John Moss said."Both Hickey and Goggin were identified by profiling, [on] 14 reports that averaged to , so a small number, and the context is there are over 1 million transfers that go out of Australia into the Philippines valued at less than 0."Finding these activities in that mass of data requires specialist tools, dedicated analysts and more importantly information sharing."The International Justice Mission's Mr Nagle believes the real number of Australian perpetrators abusing children could be much higher than the AFP numbers indicate.
“I think the other thing that’s great, and I was just talking to Barbara about this before, is we didn’t want it to be gimmicky,” says Jones.
Accordingly, cybersex is about sex, but a form of sexual encounter involves experiences typical of other encounters, such as sexual arousal, masturbation, orgasm, and satisfaction.
Indeed, people consider cybersex to have a high degree of psychological reality—but many do not consider it to be consider it to be infidelity.
Over Skype, Dawson was taken inside a Manila slum where he paid Joann to carry out the sexual abuse of three young children. Sam Inocencio, from the non-government organisation International Justice Mission, was involved in the crime-fighting operation in the Philippines that caught Dawson in the act."[The abused children are] two sisters and one boy, and the facilitator is their aunt and so even that alone is really just disturbing," he told 7.30."This type of crime is really just dark and evil."But Dawson left a trail for the AFP to find by also downloading vast amounts of child abuse material.
In March last year, the AFP raided his Brisbane property.
