French pedophile arrested
The Public Prosecution service is prosecuting a 53-year old Frenchman and a 19-year old Dominican accused of pedophilia in Samana.
Pascal Windland and Dominican, Edward Gervacio Burgos were arrested last Thursday, 16 July 2015, in an operation carried out in the Catanga neighborhood in El Limon, Samana province. The Dominican was raped by the Frenchman when he was a child and later became his accomplice.
Both are accused of pedophilia involving three adolescents aged 10, 13 and 15.
In the raid, the police confiscated several sexual objects, children’s bathing suits, five sets of handcuffs, iPads, cell phones and computers. The Public Prosecution office said that the Frenchman was making videos while molesting the children.
The prosecutors are asking for one year in jail on remand.
It was known that Windland entered and left the Dominican Republic on many occasions prior to his arrest. Windland is also known to have frequently traveled to other countries, including Mexico, Peru, Vietnam and Thailand. The authorities said that Windland has had pedophilia charges filed against him in France.
