Dutch paedophile given 4-year jail sentence
The Funchal Supreme Court on Tuesday handed a Dutch citizen found guilty of committing criminal acts linked to paedophilia a jail term of four years.
Besides a four-year prison sentence, the 58-year-old Christian Albert Mullenders was also told to pay a compensation fee of 750,000 escudos (3,750 euros) to three minors used as actors in pornographic films. Christian Mullenders, a trained chef, will serve his sentence in the Netherlands and is prohibited to enter Portugal within five years of his eventual release from prison. The Vara Mista Court in Funchal exonerated him from accusations of fomenting prostitution and of the trafficking of humans.
