The victims were employees of a zoo and a cinema in Antwerp, where the 50-year-old man also held a managerial position, Belga news agency reported.

The first complaint was filed on June 16, 2022 by a former zoo employee. During further investigation, 11 victims were identified. Adult women, as well as two underage students, were sexually assaulted. Tommy P. preferred areas of the zoo where there were no security cameras, such as the office or the stables.

The supervisor made sexually suggestive comments and touched the women “inappropriately,” prosecutors said. The events were classified as an attack on modesty. Several other victims joined the victims as civil plaintiffs.

In addition to the sexual assault, Tommy P. was also tried for possession of child pornography. During the searches carried out during the investigation, images of sexual abuse of minors were discovered. The prosecutor demanded the immediate arrest of the accused, citing the risk of repeat crimes. However, the court did not grant his request.

According to the defendant’s lawyer, an immediate arrest would be catastrophic for the zoo. “Tommy runs the park alone. He makes all the important decisions. If he is arrested now, it will be a disaster for the zoo,” he said.

“Tommy presented himself as a trustworthy person. He started with innocent conversations: how things are going at home, how your relationships are going… Once he gains your trust in this way, his true intentions become obvious. Then he moves on. and the unwanted touching begins,” said one of the victims.

Tommy P. denies the facts and talks about a conspiracy theory against him, which the victims deny. According to them, a conspiracy was impossible because not all the victims knew each other.
