Belgian pedophile priest wanted by Interpol to give himself up

Het Nieuwsblad - Pedofiele pater geeft zich maandag aan

BRUSSELS - The Flemish pedophile priest Eric Dejaeger , who is internationally wanted by Interpol for child abuse in Canada, is going to surrender Monday to the Prosecutor's Office in Louvain/ Leuven. He seems to have recognized his errors, even ahead of ex-bishop Roger Vangheluwe.

It was an open secret for years that the suspect resides at the Oblate Fathers in Blanden in Leuven. Dejaeger himself will go Monday to the State Prosecutor's Office in Leuven. The fathers who gave him shelter begged him to.

Dejaeger abused eight children when he worked as a missionary in Canada. He served his sentence of 18 months , but there are nine new complaints of child abuse. Canada asked three months ago, via Interpol to Belgium to extradite the priest.
