Olivier Larroque, 60, did not appear for the first day of his trial on Monday, after disappearing from the justice radar months earlier. A Paris court judged him thus in absentia, behind closed doors.

The court sentenced him on Wednesday to 20 years in prison for raping nearly thirty underprivileged teenagers between 2011 and 2013 in Hanoiwhere he worked for the French Hospital, according to a judicial source and two lawyers.

“Justice was done, although incomplete because the defendant was not present”lawyer Christopher Mesnooh, who represented seven of the victims, told AFP.

The defense regretted that the process was carried out without the defendant. “Being absent, the maximum sentence was imposed on him,” lawyer Camille Lucotte, for whom everything had been decided in advance, told AFP.

The investigations began at the beginning of 2013 due to an indication before the embassy of France in Vietnam.

A local association pointed out the accusations against Larroque by street children between the ages of 13 and 15, along with videos showing the defendant having sexual relations with minors.

The open investigation in France led to his July 2013 arrest in Hanoi and his repatriation.

Before the investigators, the victims described the same ‘modus operandi’: the defendant approached them, made them go to a hotel or their home, and abused them.

The defendant denied any coercion and presented himself as a simple client of prostitutes.
