The suspect was detained last week and charged with rape, sexual assault and encouraging gross indecency.
The suspect worked for the VRT and was one of the people who conceived a popular series on our children's TV channel Ketnet, but the events are believed to have taken place before his involvement with the Flemish public broadcaster.
The suspect also worked as a dancing teacher and his victims are all thought to be pupils. The man's lawyer told VRT: "We regret the investigation has received attention in the media. I'm only prepared to say that there is a broader context which will become clear later on."
Maarten Janssen, Ketnet's manager says he's shocked: "Yes, it's given us quite a fright, but we will have to await the outcome of the investigation."
