Former UN Chief in Nepal Convicted of Child Abuse
Former UN Chief in Nepal Convicted of Child Abuse. Former UN chief Peter Dalglish (62) has been found guilty of sexual abuse of minors by a court in Nepal.
According to Terre des Hommes, the conviction of the Canadian, who for years worked for street children, is a great success in the prosecution of child abusers.
In April 2017, local investigators from Terre des Hommes in Nepal received the first report regarding abuse, although it was not yet known that it was Dalglish.
Three months before his arrest in 2018, a group of street children reported to the investigators with allegations to his address. This was followed by a two-week intensive investigation, during which the suspect was shadowed.
Dalglish was arrested on April 7, 2018, in his home in Katike in Nepal. At that time, two underage boys of 12 and 14 years were in his room. The sentence he will receive will be announced on July 8.
