Bosio reportedly detained at water park with three minors07 April, 15:52
Justice Secretary Leila de Lima was quoted by the Manila Times as saying police arrested Bosio at a water amusement park in the town of Binyan, 40 km south of the capital, following a tip-off from a local child-rights group.
"He was caught in the company of three boys, ages eight to 12 years old," de Lima said.
Police alleged Bosio had violated the country's anti-trafficking and child-abuse laws, she added.
He is being held at a prison in Binyan, the Manila Times cited Police Chief Superintendent Jesus Gatchalian as saying.
Bosio has been placed in an individual cell and is in good health, other sources said.
