Molester nabbed in guesthouse

(27-12-2005)

HCM CITY — Police in HCM City arrested an Austrian national yesterday on child sexual abuse charges at a guesthouse in District 1’s Da Kao Ward.

Peter Mueller, 68, was caught living with a 14-year-old schoolboy.

Upon interrogation, Mueller admitted that he had had sexual relations with the boy for two years. He was also found to have molested other Vietnamese children, including street kids.

According to a source from the Ministry of Public Security, Mueller was an international criminal who has been wanted worldwide by Interpol for child sexual abuse since October of this year. Once he was tracked to Viet Nam, Vietnamese police co-operated with Interpol to apprehend him.

In early 2003, Mueller was prosecuted in Austria for child sexual abuse. He escaped to Viet Nam in July 2003 and has worked here as a foreign language teacher and joined in some social activities. Further investigation is ongoing. — VNS
