Johnson, Richard Holden, a former member of the Special Forces in England, is nevertheless traumatized by his arrest and the succeeding reports which apparently condemned him guilty despite the fact that his accuser never surfaced during the preliminary hearing according to his lawyer Atty.

BI agents nab British pedophile

PNA (Philippines News Agency)

The Bureau of Immigration (BI) on Wednesday reported the arrest of an alleged Briton pedophile who victimized Filipino women and children in Dumaguete City.

BI Commissioner Marcelino Libanan identified the arrested foreigner as Richard Holden, 39, who was nabbed by BI intelligence operatives last Oct. 16 in his residence along Boulevard Avenue, Dumaguete City. Holden was later brought to Manila and is presently detained at the Bicutan immigration jail pending deportation proceedings.

According to Libanan, he issued the mission order for Holdens arrest after he was informed that the Briton had impregnated at least four Filipina girls within the two-year period that he had stayed in the country. He said he was so alarmed by the activities of the pedophile that he immediately dispatched a team of BI agents to Dumaguete to arrest the Briton.

According to BI intelligence chief Faizal Hussin, Holden allegedly enticed the girls to have sex with him after making false promises of financial support and but stopped communicating with them after they got pregnant.

Hussin said the Briton was also frequently seen stalking Filipina girls in the parks, schools and shopping malls of Dumaguete City and secretly taking pictures of them using his mobile phone. The BI also obtained a CD containing the said pictures and video footages of his sexual intercourses with some of the victims, he added.

Members of the arresting team reported that Holden had refused to present his passport or immigration documents to the arresting agents. At present, his case is being heard by BI special prosecutor Cris Villalobos of the bureaus law and investigation division.

Alleged Brit pedophile held for Dumaguete cybersex trade


17 October 2008

A British national may face deportation proceedings for allegedly operating a cybersex ring in Dumaguete City in Negros Oriental.

An e-mail tip-off from an informant named only as "T. Johnson" sent officials of the Bureau of Immigration from Manila in search of a British man accused of befriending minors and taking nude pictures and videos of them.

Bureau officials said Richard Holden has been in the country for three years. His modus operandi is to befriend young girls aged between 12 and 16.

The suspects will invite the girls to his home and orders them to take their clothes off while at his room. He then takes pictures and videos of the girls without their clothes on.

Arresting officials, however, said they face a quandary since no one has come forward to file a formal complaint against the suspect.

Ansari Macaayan of the BI said that they can only cite Holden for violating the country's immigration laws since he has exceeded the maximum period of stay as a foreigner.

Allan Martinez, the suspect's lawyer, meanwhile, said they will file a complaint to question the warrantless arrest.

Some girls who accompanied Holden to the police precinct, meanwhile, said they are the suspect's friends, adding that they have no information regarding the accusations against the British national.

A woman named Mae Amiron, on the other hand, told ABS-CBN Dumaguete that she has been Holden's friend for the past two years.

She said that the allegations against the foreigner are not true since he devotes his time to collecting paintings and building hydro-plane models.

She also showed the room in Holden's home that did not contain a computer or camera used in the alleged nude video and photography sessions.

The woman, however, failed to come up with an explanation regarding Holden's nature of business. She said that as far as she knows, Holden is a tourist and is living off his pension.

Amiron defended Holden from the accusations, adding that he respects the man so much. In fact, she said that her younger sister works as Holden's maid.

The bureau, meanwhile, is investigating the identity of the informant named T. Johnson.

A deeper background checkl on Holden and his associates is also underway. With a report from Vera Leigh Lasam, ABS-CBN Dumaguete
