THE Spaniard accused of sexual molestation by a 16-year-old girl is set to be arraigned Friday, October 29, 2021, before the Taguig City regional trial court.

Francisco Manuel Sanchez a. k. a “Franco Sanchez”, 36, was charged by the Taguig City Prosecutor’s Office with 10 counts of violation of Republic Act 7610 (Anti-Child Abuse Law) and RA 9775 (Anti-Child Pornography Act).

The victim, a student of an exclusive school in Taguig City, recently made headlines after she filed sexual abuse cases against Dean Edward Cheves, a director at the United States Embassy in Manila.

According to the victim, she first met Sanchez on December 14, 2020 in Pasay City. The suspect allegedly brought her to his place in Taguig City where they allegedly took illegal drugs and immediately had sex.

This incident was allegedly followed by several more sexual abuses.

A hold-departure-order was already issued against Sanchez, to prevent him from leaving the country during the pendency of the cases.
