Monaco’s Criminal Court has sentenced a Romanian national to one year in jail for a series of sexual assaults, local French-language daily Monaco-Matin reports.
The offences were committed at the Monaco Monte-Carlo railway station, the court was told, where the accused touched the intimate parts of several women waiting for trains and looked under the skirts of girls. He also put his head under the ladies' toilet door to watch women urinating. Video surveillance confirmed the numerous complaints from members of the public.
The unemployed recidivist, who appeared in court in handcuffs on Friday, January 19, was found guilty of public indecency, assault and breaking an order to stay out of the Principality.
