An Antwerp paedophile, who fled to Cambodia after being sentenced to 19 years in prison, applied to work as a teacher at school in Siem Reap, the Mediahuis and Het Laatste Nieuws reported on Saturday.
“He only wanted to teach for a few days”, a Flemish teacher at the Cambodian school told the newspapers. The school recognised the man on an information site a few days later. “I was very surprised when I found out he was wanted in Belgium for abusing minors. I immediately sent a warning to all the schools in the region”, she said.
Belgium wants Cambodia to arrest the individual and extradite him to Belgium. The government has already contacted the King of Cambodia about the case.
