I see these posts and it makes me wonder just how easy it would be - if you had a real hard grudge against someone - to post this kind of stuff to ruin their life.

I have no reason to doubt what's posted, but there is someone on Facebook claiming that the person who originally posted it is a serial liar and has done this before to other foreigners. Who to believe?

If the story is correct, I hope he's caught soon and punished in the same deprived way that it seems he treated his victims, but just because something is posted on FB, I'm hesitant to instantly believe it - even if it's accompanied by official looking warrants and other documents. We all know how easy those would be to forge.

Maybe I just find it more comforting to believe that there are nasty people who post stuff like this to ruin people's lives rather than believe that there really are people out there who do disgusting and depraved things to innocent children.

PREDA Foundation
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The People’s Recovery Empowerment Development Assistance Foundation, commonly referred to as the PREDA Foundation or PREDA, is a charitable organization that was founded in Olongapo City, Philippines in 1974. Its purposes include the promotion and protection of the dignity and the Human Rights of the Filipino people, especially of women and children. The main focus is to assist the sexually-exploited and abused children.

History

Father Shay Cullen is a Catholic Missionary priest from Dublin, Ireland, a member of the Missionary Society of St. Columban. He helped found the charity in 1974 along with Alex Corpus Hermoso and Merly Ramirez. Since then, Fr. Shay Cullen has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize twice.

Preda Foundation and Fr. Shay Cullen were awarded the prestigious Human Rights Award from the City of Weimar, in Germany.

Are arrest warrants in the Philippines usually issue in English?

The 1987 Constitution declares Filipino as the national language of the country. Filipino and English are the official languages, with the recognition of the regional languages as auxiliary official in their respective regions (though not specifying any particular languages). Spanish and Arabic are to be promoted on an optional and voluntary basis.
