Johannesburg - Alleged paedophile and former Randburg priest Georg Kerkhoff is accused in German court papers of abusing his 11-year-old godson, The New Age reported on Thursday.

Kerkhoff, aged 56, will go on trial on Friday on 23 charges related to crimes allegedly committed in Krefeld and Nettetal, Germany, from 2001 to 2006.

According to court papers Kerkhoff allegedly touched his godson's genitals.

He is also accused of showing the boy and his 8-year-old brother pictures of naked men.

"He also lay naked on [top of] the stripped child and did rhythmic movements during sexual intercourse," the report quoted court documents.

Kerkhoff was extradited to Germany last year after South African child abuse charges against him were dropped in the Brits Magistrate's Court following a five-year trial.
