French ex-surgeon accused of paedophilia arrives at court for trial


Accused of rape and sexual assault on four minor victims but suspected of hundreds more crimes, former surgeon Joël Le Scouarnec arrives in a police van at the cour d'assises in Saintes. The trial at the Assizes court in Charente-Maritime began on March 13 but was interrupted on the second day of the hearing by confinement due to the coronavirus crisis. A verdict is expected on Thursday, the day of the 70th birthday of the accused. This is only the first step in a larger investigation into Le Scouarnec, who is also suspected of the rape and sexual assault of 312 victims between 1984 and 2014. IMAGES
