The father, Geert-Jean van Dorsten, 67, is facing charges 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, in which his detention was extended for three months.

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

Prosecutor Diana Rogen said the judges "All children said they were subjected to corporal punishment if he thought they were under the influence of spirits. It happened from a very young age when they were four or five years old".

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.
