Crotty would befriend women via social media before offering them money to have their children abused while he watched.

The British embassy said the British National Crime Agency reported Crotty’s arrival in the Philippines on Feb. 6. He lived with his girlfriend in Tangub City, but they have since separated.

The tourist is currently detained by the Immigration Office and has not spoken publicly about his arrest. He is scheduled to be extradited to the UK, where he is on the sex offenders register, to face charges.

Ansari added: “This is a clear warning that our country is not a safe haven for foreign offenders. Philippine law enforcement officers are always on the lookout for criminals who abuse our hospitality here in this country.”

Crotty was jailed in Cardiff Crown Court in March 2013 for “arranging child prostitution in the Philippines.”

The pervert, then 54, lived in the Rhymney Valley, chatting with Filipino moms online and asking for lewd photos of their daughters.

Chat records obtained by police revealed that Crotty had asked the women for pictures of their children in the shower or naked in bed. Some mothers had blocked him, calling him “abnormal” and a “maniac,” but others desperate for money complied with his twisted requests.

In court, Crotty insisted on his innocence, claiming that his friends had used his computer while he was sleeping. However, the jury found that contrary to his alibis, he had actually been sitting at his desktop all night.

He was sentenced to nine years in prison for child prostitution, possession of indecent photos of children and committing child sex crimes. He was released in 2021.
