MANILA, Philippines—What the show “Willing Willie” did to Jan-Jan Suan, the 6-year-old boy who was told to simulate a striptease while in tears in exchange for cash in front of a cheering studio audience, was criminal, the Commission on Human Rights (CHR) said Tuesday.
The CHR said it would investigate the episode as it appeared to have violated a law protecting children.
“The commission will investigate this incident in order to identify the person/s liable and to recommend proper legal actions against them,” it said in a statement.
The statement was signed by CHR Chair Loretta Ann Rosales and Commissioner Ma. Victoria Cardona, who is in charge of children’s issues.
