A doctor from Leiden has been arrested on charges of secretly filming female patients as they undressed, as well as the sexual abuse of three girls, the public prosecution department said on Wednesday.

The 37-year-old man, who worked in several different practices throughout the Randstad area, was picked up after the parents of one of the under-age girls went to the police. The investigation then turned up the other two abuse cases and the secret films.

The public prosecutor said the doctor had made ‘several dozen’ films at three different practices. The police are still trying to trace all the victims.

The man appeared in court on Wednesday and was remanded in custody for two months while the investigation continues.
