Priester opgepakt na gruwelijke kindertekeningen van seksueel misbruik

In Brazilië is een priester opgepakt naar aanleiding van de tekeningen van een vijfjarig meisje waarop te zien is hoe een kind seksueel wordt misbruikt. De ouders van het meisje uit Minas Gerais zeggen de tekeningen te hebben gevonden nadat hun dochter weigerde om nog naar de Engelse lessen van pastoor Joao da Silva (54) te gaan, zo schrijven lokale media. Hun dochter was zo overstuur dat ze haar meenamen naar een psycholoog, die seksueel misbruik vermoedde. Toen de ouders de kamer van hun kind doorzochten vonden ze zes tekeningen waarop in detail het misbruik te zien was. Karine Maia van een organisatie die geweld tegen vrouwen wil stoppen zei op een persconferentie: "Een van de tekeningen trok vooral onze aandacht. Daarop was een naakte man te zien met een erectie."
