Father warned children of ’bad spirits’ while keeping them captive

Dutch prosecutors accused a man of keeping six of his nine children captive for nearly a decade at an isolated farmhouse by telling them that ’bad spirits’ would enter their bodies if they talked to outsiders. Gerrit-Jan van Dorsten, 67, is charged with unlawful detention, child abuse and money laundering. Van Dorsten was nabbed in October 2019 after one of his kids escaped to a nearby bar.
