On Tuesday the trial started against 34-year-old Leidse P., who is suspected of four rapes and two assaults. Moreover, during the session it appeared that other athletes did not report, but were abused to a greater or lesser extent.
P. was the head coach of the Leiden club ZVL for many years, worked as an assistant coach at the Dutch Juniors, coached in a regional training center and supervised students at the Leonardo College in Leiden. The coach denied most charges on Tuesday: he had certainly not committed rapes, he admitted a case of fornication with a 15-year-old girl. He also admitted that he had a relationship with a pupil of 16 years old.
