Paedophile says if his victims sue he will force them to take medical exams

62 year old, Maurice Van Ryn, has told the families of children he abused that he will force them to have medical tests if they sue him.

He has now said, from a letter in jail, that if any families sue him he will make them undergo medical exams as it “would be argued in court”.
An advocate for the victims said they are expected some significant compensation, some even into the millions.

Van Ryn was jailed for at least 13 years in 2015 when he was found guilty of assault offences to children between 8 and 16.
He was also charged for 5 counts of indecent assault, 5 of indecency and 1 count of assault with indecency. He also pleaded guilty to sexual abuse of a child.
