In total, it concerns twelve children from all over the country and the crimes must have been committed between 2020 and 2022.
– He has offered them money, which he wished, so in this way it was possible to trace him. But he denies the crime and claims that he paid them for food and make-up, says prosecutor Thomas Bälter.
The man also allegedly molested several children by sending pictures of himself – and had a number of pictures in his possession showing abuse of children.
During the trial, video interviews with the children are played and some parents will testify.
The trial is expected to last seven days.
