Philippine police say they have filed a complaint for child trafficking against a vacationing Italian diplomat arrested at a resort south of Manila in the company of three street boys aged 9 to 12.
Senior Supt. Romulo Sapitula said Monday that police arrested Daniele Bosio on Saturday at a resort in Laguna province, where members of the child rights group Bahay Tuluyan were also on an outing, became suspicious and alerted authorities. The 46-year-old Italian is a diplomat in Turkmenistan and was on a holiday in the Philippines.
The Italian Embassy did not immediately comment.
