He arrived in the Philippines from Sydney on August 19 to meet a minor he met through Facebook.

Anti-child pornography operatives of the Philippine National Police-Women and Children Protection Center (PNP-WCPC) arrested Farhanipour Gholamreza on suspicion of involvement in child sex tourism and pornography at the NAIA Terminal 1 Monday, just as he was leaving the Philippines.
An operative posed as a friend of Gholamreza’s and negotiated with the minor for about P2,000 to facilitate a supposed meeting with the Australian.
"Then the minor together with the family, ang sabi ng mother niya, will be the one to pick up the money.
"It's a protocol of Facebook to monitor all the chat logs and they came upon the account of this minor chatting with an Australian national.
The victim has long been providing explicit images," said Chief Superintendent Rosauro Acio, head of the PNP-WCPC.
