Pedo Priest Eric Dejaeger
Crimes: Pedophile, Molestation, Buggery

Catholic missionary and pedophile Eric Jose Dejaeger is in deep doo-doo. He was in doo-doo before, way back in 1990, when he was pled guilty to 9 charges of sex abuse against Inuit boys and girls. He got 5 years in prison for those. But now for poor POS Eric Jose Dejaeger, now 65, the doo-doo pile is oh so much deeper.

Nine charges were bad enough, but this time around the pedophile priest is facing 74 criminal charges stemming from his time in Edmonton, Alberta between 1975 and 1978, and in Igloolik, Nunavut, between 1978 and 1982. The number of victims so far is 39. That could rise.

The victims I am referring to were boys and girls at the time. Those do not include the canine victims. Yup, this POS pedophile priest Eric Jose Dejaeger is being charged with sexually abusing and assaulting boys, girls AND dogs.

To be fair, Eric Jose Dejaeger has only been charged with these crimes and has yet to be tried and found guilty. The trial will hopefully take place in spring of 2013. It will likely last for a month. The police investigation continues and the number of charges may increase.

Crown prosecutor Paul Bychok said, “The nature of this kind of scenario is that one can never be entirely sure that at some point in the future, another individual will not come forward… But we’re very close to that point in time where we’ll know the exact perimeters in this particular case.”

Even though he has yet to be tried on this latest batch of charges, since Eric Jose Dejaeger is a confessed and convicted pedophile he well and truly belongs among the ranks of hellbeasts.

Eric Jose Dejaeger originated from Belgium. He became a Canadian citizen in the 1970’s (lucky us!), and studied at Newman Theological College in Edmonton, Alberta. He became a Roman Catholic priest. *shock* Imagine that — a priest turned pedophile! Or was that a pedophile turned priest? Whichever, he apparently didn’t spend all his time studying.

Baker Lake Catholic ChurchOnce the POS pedo priest was ordained, he moved to Igloolik in the far north of Canada. He lived there only from 1978 to 1982. After that he transferred to Baker Lake where he lived until 1989.

Serving the church and its faithful kept the priest Dejaeger busy only part of the time. He obviously spent a fair bit of time hunting his primary prey: the children of the church.

Baker Lake Catholic ChurchEric Dejaeger was convicted in 1990 of sex crimes against children in Baker Lake only. After his release from prison in 1995, Eric the POS pedophile Dejaeger fled Canada instead of showing up in court to face new molestation charges.

Interpol issued an international warrant for this POS pedophile’s arrest in 2001. And then all Canadian justice and the victims could do was wait. And wait. And wait.

Pervert Dejaeger managed to live an entire 16 years in Belgium until he was exposed by a newspaper and arrested in 2011. Not being a citizen of Belgium any more, he was subsequently expelled and returned to Nunavut to face the new charges.

I wonder if officials in Belgium are checking for any child molestation he may have committed there. Sixteen years is a long time for a pedophile to go without a victim.

Eric Jose Dejaeger pisses me off in so many ways. First and foremost, he’s a pedophile, and anyone who knows me knows I hate pedophiles. Secondly, he hid behind the robes of priest, and in the guise of being a religious, caring, wise leader he was hunting, grooming and targeting the most vulnerable of all for his own sexual perversions.

And it really pisses me off that he chose his victims from the Inuit of the far north. Their communities are small and isolated, and the resources available to them are so limited. He was a big fish in a small pond, and as such had more power over his congregation than he probably would have had in a large urban centre.

Pedo Priest Eric Jose DejaegerSo whether Eric Jose Dejaeger is found guilty of all 74 counts, or if he cuts a deal with the prosecutors, I hope he rots in jail and then in hell for all the child raping AND dog raping he has committed.

And I pray his victims will have happiness and contentment and healing in their lives.

Rot, Dejaeger, rot.


Dejaeger was convicted of 24 sex-related charges, including indecent assault, unlawful confinement, buggery, unlawful sexual intercourse, sexual assault and bestiality. After pleading guilty to 8 counts at the start of his trial, he will be sentenced for 32 sex crimes.

The victims include 22 children, most between 8 and 12 years old, and a dog he abused in front of two children.

    I sure as hell hope the victims can sue the Catholic Church for placing a pedophile in their communities. It just exhausts me to think of all the pervert priests that have been exposed, and I can’t imagine how many damaged individuals they have left in their wake.

    Not surprising in the least. The catholic church has somewhat made these monsters, seeing as how they are so anti-sex and anti-masturbation and all. When you make a very natural thing unnatural or forbidden, you open the door for all kinds of sick shit to happen. Humans are not built for abstinence. Unfortunately, most of these assholes turn to children because they are week, trusting, easy prey. I’m sure some of them just have a nasty thing for kiddies, but I would be willing to wager that many offenders who are members of the clergy do it because they have a psychological/biological need for sexual closeness, and children are easily accessible in the church where the leaders are trusted role models in their eyes. Would be nice for the church to take some responsibility here. Hope this guy dies. So sick of reading about this type of stuff. It’s almost like, “Oh well, another priest molested a whole bunch of kids. Let’s go get a burger.” Smh.

      I disagree with the argument that priests become pedophiles due to the ‘anti-sex’ teachings of the church. Rather than priests becoming pedophiles, it is true that pedophiles flock to the priesthood where they are free to be around vulnerable (in the past, orphans) children.
      People’s sexual desires (ie. for children, people of the opposite sex,
      people of the same sex) develop at an early age (likely before or during puberty). A straight person will not turn homosexual simply because there are no people of the opposite sex around to have sex with for example. Perverted child abusers always gravitate towards places/professions where they are easily able to find the most easy
      victims. Hope they all burn in hell for eternity.

    I am a catholic myself be it not a practicing one. As a child I went to church every sunday and also went to catholic schools. It saddens and sickens me when i read about these so called priests preying on young children. Luckily I grew up in a parish that had beautiful priests who did their job and protected children not preyed upon them. It’s men like Jose that bring a bad name name to all priests when most of them are wonderful assets to their communities.

    Why is it that the majority of priests, monks and bishops turn out to be Paedaphiles. Its like they tend to gravitate towards the church. They must think that its a problem with them and god and that the rules of church are that anything said in confession cannot be repeated. But when they do fall from grace they fall spectacularly.

    I was the social worker who opened this up in 1989..took a long time to get over the trauma he exacted on those Northern communities. Your right he should rot in jail. Chances are however he will no doubt get his awyer to plead how he has been in jail so long without bail(he chose to not ask for bail he would rather have the state pay for his sustanance rather than burden his OMI brethren for his keep. A leachj, a criminal and yes a POS

      Michel, good for you for exposing this monster. I truly hope he is locked up forever because predators like him don’t ever change. I really hope the victims have recovered and are safe and happy now.

      • Bengalpuss says:

        2Cute, this piece of shit should be due to be tried in court very shortly. just had a look but can’t find anything. Lets hope the judge in this case has got a brain, and a big pair of balls, the brain for not believing it was a mistake, and the balls to dish out a decent sentence to a beast.
