The former missionary has admitted to the police to have sexually abused boys at a Norwegian Christian orphanage in Bolivia. The sexual assaults are said to have taken place over a period of 15 years, according to Dagbladet.
The man was head of the orphanage for a long time and left the responsibility to other Norwegian missionaries to years ago.
It was the new leaders who understood that something was wrong in the orphanage where 50 Bolivian orphans were living.
The 72-year-old will be presented to a court this autumn.
