Father forced 7-year-old to have sex with prostitutes to ‘not grow up gay’

Feb 10 2021 Share

A Siggiewi man received an eight year prison sentence after forcing his son to have sex with prostitutes so to not turn out gay when he grows up.

The 65-year-old man was arraigned for the first time five years ago following reports to Aġenzija Appoġġ from the prostitutes, with the father stating in court that he did not want his son to be gay because he had two homosexual family members.

It was reported that the father would force the prostitutes to have sex with his son, encourage group sex acts, threaten his son not to report him and shout at him and beat him when he did not have an erection.

The boy, now 12-years-old, is in the care of Aġenzija Appoġġ.
