Swim teacher faces 11 abuse complaints so far

The parents of 11 girls suspected of being abused by swimming teacher Benno L have made formal complaints to the police, the Volkskrant reports on Wednesday.

Benno L was arrested last month on suspicion of indecently assaulting almost 100 girls. Thousands of photographs were found on digital cameras and computers at his home in Den Bosch.
On Wednesday, L was remanded in custody until September 18. Police expect the investigation to take a further three or four months.
Earlier this month, L’s lawyer said the case had been blown out of all proportion.
