Brussels Appeal Court acquits man convicted of raping infant daughterTuesday, 05 December 2017 20:04
During a playground activity on the 27th of August 2011, the little girl, then four years old, had described to a childcarer, using infant language, sexual acts which, she said, her father had committed on her. The childcarer immediately alerted the youth assistance services and the child was removed from the family home. The father had always denied sexually abusing his daughter.
The infant was the last of five siblings. They had already been placed in foster care by a judge in the past following violence in the home between their parents.
