Predilection for young girls.
THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF INTERNAL TRAFFICKING (every bit as evil but receiving of less attention) - Patricia Church- Blog Editor.
Rosario was the ninth child of twelve in a poor family in Manila. Her mother died when she was nine years old. For awhile, her older brothers and sisters cared for the younger children, but after a few years they were unable to keep their small house, and the children were split up and left to fend for themselves. That is how Rosario ended up on the streets in Manila, scavenging for food. It was there that she met up with Peter, a twelve-year-old who had been on the streets for severalyears. In addition to begging, he also worked the streets for a local brothel. After a few days of scavenging together, Peter brought Rosario to the brothel and told her that she could trade doing odd chores for food and shelter.Also in Manila for a few weeks at that time was Heinrich Rimer (not his real name), an Austrian medical doctor who visited manila frequently for rest and relaxation. Dr. Rimer was well known in Manila for his predilection for young girls, and, this visit, like others, he contacted Peter at the brothel and asked him to bring a young female to his hotel.Peter brought Rosario. Dr. Rimer gave Peter $12.00 and asked him to stay. He gave Rosario a drink with a powerful muscle relaxant in it and then proceeded to rape her with Peter watching. Rosario said later that the doctor hurt her terribly. However even then, he wasn't finished. He took out a vibrator from his suitcase and tried to insert it into Rosario. But the vibrator broke into several pieces inside Rosario. Dr. Rimer then removed the vibrator and gave Peter another $10.00 and told him to take Rosario away.Out on the street Rosario complained that she was hurting. Peter took her to a local doctor who gave her some pain pills. They told no one what had happened to Rosario. The pills helped a bit and Rosario felt better…for a few days. Then she began to complain of a fever and chills, and general malaise. When they went back to the doctor, he gave her an antibiotic. She felt better again for awhile, but about four weeks later, she developed several pains in her abdomen and the fever came back. She wandered the streets like this for several more weeks before she collapsed. She was taken to the local hospital, where, 3 days before she died, she told a nun what had happened to her.The nun ordered an autopsy and several pieces of the vibrator were found in Rosario's cervical area. The nun reported Rosario's death to the police who went looking for Peter. When they found him, he told them the story of Dr. Rimer, who visited frequently and always asked for young girls. For the first time, the government was galvanized. Law enforcement agents contacted Austria and Dr. Rimer was identified. He was extradited to the Philippines and tried, but let off on a technicality. He went back to Austria and returned to his medical practice.Since then Austria, Germany, and a few other Western European countries have passed laws prohibiting child sex tourism, and making it a crime to sexually abuse a child in a foreign country.- Rosario, trafficked in the Philippines, originally from the Philippines
