Today, 4:40 PM
A 54-year-old pastor on Curaçao must go to prison for 18 years, as far as the Public Prosecutor’s Office (OM) is concerned. He will also not be able to lead a church for 20 years. The pastor is said to have abused churchgoers on a large scale. His youngest victim was 11 years old. The abuse began in 2003.
Then the reports came in. Also from the Netherlands where there are branches of the church in Tilburg, The Hague, Rotterdam and Amsterdam. More than twenty cases became known. Ten of them were on trial on Wednesday. The victims were also present. Their statements were read.
The pastor raped the girls under the pretext of devil exorcism. He scared them by saying they were possessed by demons he had put into their bodies. He would wake them up if they would say anything about the abuse.
Orlando B. drugged his victims and used a lot of violence. Some girls woke up while they were covered with blood. One of the victims became pregnant five times, after which he brought her to a doctor and paid for the abortions. After the abuse he gave money to the girls to buy a morning-after pill. The pastor claimed the right to remain silent.
