The 34-year-old US citizen was teaching infants at the island’s international school before he was arrested for the possession of thousands of child pornography in Texas.

Curaçao – An international row has broken out on the Dutch island of Curaçao following the arrest of a former teacher for the possession of child pornography in the United States.

Until this summer, the 34-year-old man had been teaching infants at the island’s prestigious International School.

Parents whose children study in the Netherlands Antilles island school expressed anger over the news. They said they had complained about the man’s behaviour during his time as a teacher.

In response, the school said the teacher was carefully vetted before being appointed.

The US citizen was arrested in Texas for possessing and distributing child pornography in October. He was found to have thousands of pornographic photos and videos featuring young girls. Some of the photos and videos also featured him.
