Nivelles Public Prosecutor’s office opens criminal investigation into alleged paedophile in Lasne

An enquiry was opened on Friday following a story published by the newspaper, La Dernière Heure, about alleged paedophile activity involving a Lasne municipal employee, said Nivelles public prosecutor in an interview given to the Belga news agency. According to the daily paper, a municipal employee suspected of paedophile activities and who has worked in the municipality of Lasne for 36 years, has been “quietly dismissed.”

The newspaper also states that apparently thousands of photos of young men and under-18s, to whom the man issued provisional driving licences, were found on the 60-year-old’s work PC. La Dernière Heure believes municipal authorities tried to keep themselves cleans by hushing up the story.

During the day Lasne municipality categorically denied the information that the acting alderman of Lasne had covered a paedophile, adding that the work contract of a municipal employee was terminated by mutual agreement for breaches of contract, and that the individual in question had not committed any offences.

In light of the story which appeared in the press, Nivelles Public Prosecutor’s office opened and enquiry on Friday. “We currently have no information about any of this. The enquiry has been opened to  establish whether a violation has been committed or not,” Nivelles public prosecutor stated.
