STOCKHOLM—A court in southern Sweden has convicted a man of ordering online sex shows involving very young Filipino girls and sentenced him to eight years in prison.

Judge Khennet Tallinger of the Hassleholm District Court said the 52-year-old man paid adult women and relatives of the six girls — aged between 5 and 8 — to carry out graphic and violent assaults on the children.

The judge says the man, who wasn’t named publicly under Swedish privacy rules, paid for the shows in 2008 to 2009 by bank transfer — usually $30-$40 a time — and watched live online.

The man denied the charges.

Tallinger says Philippine authorities cooperated during the investigation of the case.

    What the European guy did is definitely immoral and illegal, but I hope they prioritize the foreigner who personally go to the Philippines to taste the young girls. It’s still better for the young girls, who are just forced to do it for monetary gains, to let them show their bodies live on the internet that sell their fresh meat to their customers.
