Bistum Aachen / Südafrika: Pfarrer K. vor Auslieferung

Alleged paedophile priest to be extradited

While the alleged victims of German Catholic Priest Georg Kerkhoff may never get closure, he will return home to face prosecution after his extradition application was granted.

Kerkhoff, a priest at a Catholic church in Sundowner, Randburg, was facing charges of sexually abusing five boys, aged nine to 11, after he allegedly climbed into their tents wearing just boxer shorts during a First Holy Communion camp in February 2008.

In Germany, he is facing more than 36 charges of sexual offences relating to minors.
