Picket to challenge rulings in the Bosio case and show support for victims of child exploitation

ECPAT Philippines together with our partners protest the unjust ruling in the case of People of the Philippines vs Daniele Bosio y Ostillio. We have doubts regarding Judge Teodoro N. Solis’ decision to grant bail to the accused, Daniele Bosio y Ostillio, without an arraignment.


Former Italian diplomat, Daniele Bosio y Ostillio, is accused of violation of RA 7610 (3 counts) and Qualified Trafficking in Persons (3 counts). Bosio was able to post bail immediately after Judge Solis’ ruling. While a Hold Departure Order was only issued after the accused has posted bail, Bosio’s whereabouts are currently unknown.

We fear Judge Teodoro N. Solis is not fit to handle the delicate nature of this case as he had already stated in open court that accused is not an ordinary person and allowed hospital confinement without medical basis. We are deeply concerned about the proceedings and we hope this show of support increases the likelihood for justice. We are expecting a favorable resolution that provides justice for the victims and their families.
