CAGAYAN DE ORO- The Filipina cohort of supposed Australian pedophile Peter Scully is now in Cagayan de Oro after she was arrested by the National Bureau of Investigation 7 in Malapascua, Daanbantayan, Cebu.

Liezyl Margallo, 23, has 16 pending warrants of arrests and is facing charges on human trafficking, anti-photo and video voyeurism, and the anti-child abuse act. 

Margallo has been using different aliases to conceal her identity.

Scully was arrested last 2015 in Cagayan De Oro City and was charged with multiple child sex offenses, including one that involved an 18-month-old infant.

Both Scully and Margallo have been involved in recruiting young girls for cybersex activities going as far as torturing the victims to death.

The two are reported to be behind the controversial "Destruction of Daisy" sex and physical abuse videos, with Filipina girls as victims.

They sell the videos showing lewd acts to their clients from different parts of the world, mostly the United Kingdom and USA.

After Scully's arrest, Margallo continued the illegal business, and roamed around provinces to look for potential victims. 

Since Scully started his operation in 2011, the NBI has already accounted for 11 victims. 

On Friday, Margallo was brought back to Cagayan De Oro City where she will be detained.

She was presented to Judge Hose Escobido of RTC Branch 37 who will hear all of her cases.

The NBI served 14 arrest warrants to the cohort but said she has still 59 other cases of child sex offenses together with Scully.

She is supposed to be committed to Cagayan de Oro City Jail Friday but due to lack of time she will be temporarily detained in NBI 10 detention cell.
