A 58-YEAR-OLD priest who was found guilty of indecently assaulting his underage step-daughter will be sentenced by Nicosia District Court next week. The decision was made after the welfare services report on the incident was released on Monday.
Residents from Ergates vuillage gathered outside the courts on Monday to show their support for their priest.
In her police statement, the girl claimed that she had been indecently assaulted between 1993 and 2000 during which time she was considered a minor.
According to reports, the priest’s other step daughter fainted during yesterday’s court hearing and an ambulance was called to the scene to give her first aid.
