Cape Town - The sentencing of convicted paedophile Johannes Kleinhans was delayed in the Parow Regional Court on Thursday because a medical expert was not available.

Magistrate Amanda van Leeve postponed the matter to Wednesday.

Kleinhans, 74, a former director of companies and chief executive of one, will be sentenced on 95 counts.

The counts involve sexual assaults on three pubescent girls, possession of child pornography, and taking pornographic photographs of children.

Prior to his arrest, Kleinhans befriended the parents of the three girls, and showered the families with gifts and money over a protracted period to gain their trust. - Sapa
