The trial of 58-year-old year old man who sexually abused a 14-year-old girl during the period from December 2014 to August 2015 using what he called a ‘slave contract’ began in Odense today.
The man, who reportedly used a van belonging to the Red Cross for his unlawful sexual activities, has been termed a sadomasochist by some experts.
He reportedly engaged in acts of torture, once going so far as to tie the girl up to a tree before abusing her in a forest on Limfjord, reports TV2.
Red Cross volunteer
The Red Cross confirmed to press that the man charged had previously volunteered at the organization.
“I can confirm that he was a volunteer at our Odense division and had the job of delivering furniture to second hand shops, which is the capacity in which he used the van” said Klaus Nørskov, from the Red Cross’s PR department.
“We knew nothing about the case – but did discover that he was using the car to go places other than for work. He initially received a warning and then we fired him.”
The accused was previously convicted of sexual abuse in 2012 and was ordered to refrain from any contact with minors for a period of five years.
