Eric Dejaeger, wanted on a 2002 arrest warrant in relation to child-sex charges, will be expelled from Belgium to Canada, officials say.

Belgian officials say they plan to expel a Canadian priest facing sex charges involving Inuit children in Nunavut.

Eric Dejaeger remains wanted in Canada on warrants issued in 2002 for alleged sex crimes in Igloolik about 30 years ago.

Mr. Dejaeger was originally Belgian, but took out Canadian citizenship in 1994.
