This Friday, the director of a summer camp organized last July was remanded in custody after his indictment for sexual assault on minors.

Aged 46, he is the subject of a "ten" of complaints.

In September 2000, he had already been sentenced to three years' imprisonment.

The director of a holiday camp organized in Haute-Vienne during the summer was remanded in custody after his indictment for sexual assault on minors, AFP learned from the Evreux prosecutor's office on Friday.

Aged 46, this resident of Eure is targeted by "a dozen" complaints for sexual assault and corruption of minors under the age of 15, said the prosecutor of Evreux, Rémi Coutin, confirming information from Paris Normandie .

The research brigade of the gendarmerie of Evreux in charge of the investigation is currently looking for other presumed victims who could have suffered these facts, at the beginning of July in the holiday camp "Action Séjours" in Saint-Yrieix-la- Perch.

The arrest of the director dates back to July 9, the end date of the summer camp.

It was on the platform of the Gare d'Austerlitz in Paris that parents who had come to pick up their children on their return from camp had learned that some residents, all born in 2010, said they had been victims of aggression during their stay.

Informed, the Paris prosecutor's office immediately alerted that of Evreux.

The director of the colony, who had in the meantime taken another train to return home to Normandy, was arrested by the police on his arrival at Evreux station.

Placed in police custody, the defendant denied all the charges but the children, heard by different police services in their respective regions, speak of "caresses, requests for masturbation, exhibition", said the prosecutor of Evreux.

Indicted at the end of his police custody, he has remained imprisoned since then and the judicial investigation continues.

He was already sentenced in September 2000 to three years' imprisonment, two of which were suspended for aggravated violence and attempted theft, adds Rémi Coutin.

According to Paris Normandie, this father was a former employee of the municipality of Evreux, in the Youth service.

Requested by AFP, the organization "Action Séjours" had not reacted this Friday morning.
