The public prosecution department has called for a 15-month jail sentence for a priest from Overburg for the possession of child pornography and attempting to molest three girls aged four, seven and nine.

The 60-year-old priest is also accused of taking ‘sexual’ photographs of a seven-year-old girl at a swimming pool in Kootwijk last October.
