In a rural home and forbidding them to talk to others … Undergone a neurological and psychological evaluation

The Dutch prosecution said that a parent faces charges before a court in the country of detaining six of his nine children from 2007 until 2019 in an isolated country house, and he told them that “evil spirits” would wear their bodies if they spoke to strangers.

The father, Gert-Jan van Dorsten, 67, faces charges of unlawful detention, child abuse and money laundering.

After his health deteriorated due to a stroke, he was unable to speak and did not attend the pre-trial session in the city of Assen, where his detention was extended for three months, according to Sky News Arabia.

In October, police found Van Dorsten; five of his siblings on a farm in the north of the country after a sixth brother had fled, and arrived at a bar in a nearby village, prompting residents to report to the police.

“All children said that they were subjected to corporal punishment if they thought they were under the influence of spirits. It happened from a very young age when they were four or five years old,” prosecutor Diana Rogen said.

The judges agreed to a request from the prosecution to subject the father to a neurological and psychological evaluation and said that lawyers on the defense team may cross-examine his sons, four males and five females, who had all become adults.
