Duterte’s “Spiritual Advisor” Charged with Child Sex Trafficking

U.S. prosecutors announced sex trafficking charges this Thursday alleging that girls and young women were sexually assaulted by a close friend and advisor to Rodrigo Duterte, the President of the Philippines.

Apollo Carreon Quiboloy is the founder of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ Church, an organization of over 6 million members. He claims to be “the appointed son of God” and “Owner of the Universe,” and is the longtime friend and spiritual advisor of President Duterte.

Quiboloy and two of his top administrators are among nine people named in the 74-page indictment charges, including two U.S.-based church administrators.  They are accused of running a sex-trafficking operation that threatened victims as young as 12 with “eternal damnation” and physical abuse.
