Three new complaints have been filed against the alleged paedophile whose trial continues before magistrates in Iqaluit, the capital of Nunavut.
Dejaeger stands accused of abusing dozens of Inuit children in Igloolik, a small Inuit community, between 1978 and 1982.
In the light of the fresh allegations the Belgian's counsel asked for the trial to be delayed. It is not the first time that the trial against the 66-year-old Belgian is postponed. Dejaeger has been in gaol in Iqaluit for two years now. He seemed well, but is suffering from high blood pressure and heart complaints.
