A 55-year-old man has been charged with the sexual abuse of nine children, seven of which are his own, over a period of 16 years in eastern and northern Jutland.

Prosecutors have released a long list of allegations against the man including forced incest, sadism and the rape of the children stemming from his arrest in 2010.

The first allegation concerns his 22-year-old son, whom the father is accussed of abusing since 1994, when the child was four. The boy suffered attacks for the following decade, often having his hands bounds and mouth sealed with tape.

Another son, currently 17, was allegedly abused between the ages of six and eleven. He and three of his brothers, now aged 24, 19 and 16, were also allegedly forced to rape their now 15-year-old sister.

The prosecution claims she was abused from the age of five and was subjected to periods of daily abuse, threats, rape and sexual assault over the course of the subsequent decade.

In one instance, her father is accused of having bound her legs and suspending her on hooks before sexually abusing her.

Her younger sister, now eleven, was allegedly subjected to sexual abuse between the years 2003 to 2008, beginning when she was three years old.

Two other girls not related to the man, both now aged 15, are also thought to have been abused by him.

The man, who denies all charges, is due in court on February 13 in Aalborg City Court. The prosecutor is seeking a sentence of indefinite custody for the man.
