Between the first complaint and the process Wednesday before the Brussels court of appeal are now more than four years have passed. Will Shaun C. (52), hailing from Sheffield, that he has no sexual intentions when he with three underage friends of his daughter showered, in their underwear, strip poker played or them would feel during sleepovers in a tent in the garden. “I'm just playful and impulsive. Of inappropriate touching was not the case.” This was the sixth Wednesday, is always full, supported by his wife and daughter in the hall. The three victims were friends of his daughter. They came regularly on the floor in the family of C. but never together. It was only when they discovered that they share the same unpleasant experiences had been that the ball rolling.Multiple statements
There followed several complaints and the girls were at different times separately interrogated. The resulting parallel statements, were for the university court in the first instance, be decisive to C. to condemn. But according to the professor, there was a conspiracy forged by the parents of the girls and were their statements sent. One of the girls sketched according to him, a perfect profile of someone with post-traumatic stress disorder (ptsd). C. got yesterday's sudden support from an unexpected corner. Instead of a penalty to be recovered, made the attorney-general almost firewood of the whole aanrandingsdossier.
They don't know what's there exactly the night it happened because everyone was asleep, but they go to him for sentencing.Attorney-general
“One of the girls kept a diary but on these facts it was never anything written down. And apparently, they still like to be on the floor, even after the facts. Remarkable”, said the attorney-general. Which also referred to the fact that C. after a food fight in the bath was diving with his daughter and a friend while one of them afterwards declared that C. never the bathroom would come in. The prosecutor also referred to the judgment of the city court. “They don't know what's there exactly the night it happened because everyone was asleep, but they go to him for sentencing. And if it is effective happened then he should be given the much heavier penalties. Not 10 months in prison and a just delay. I don't understand. The problem is here, just bring it back to pubermeisjes that things come up, and friendships to cherish. To convict him you must be 100 percent certain, but there are too many doubts”, the prosecutor turned to the judge. The emotions ran high in the auditorium when the defence have the word nam and just about everything is disputed.Crying room smeared
One of the victims ran crying to the room. “The story with the tent on the trampoline. It is normal that you have to have locks if you lie. It is not because they were young, that they could not lie. That are not arguments used in the criminal law”, suggested the defence. One of the mothers of the victims took the last word. “He lives near us in the street. What mother would I be to my child that four years is a long time to do. What a monster would I be?” After his conviction at first instance was the scheikundeprof suspended at the KU Leuven in order to finally dismissal after a negative internal evaluation. The fifties is still unemployed. The judgment follows in march.
