A man on trial for sexually assaulting 14 young girls in Palma has asked the court for chemical castration to prevent him repeating this type of offence.
He alleges that he suffered a childhood trauma which prevents him dominating these impulses. Chemical castration is not contemplated in Spanish legislation.
The accused, now 43, was sentenced to 68 years in jail in 1987, for 20 counts of sexual assault, and served 13 years in a jail on the Peninsula.
The prosecution is seeking a jail sentence of 104 years for offences allegedly committed between January 2000 and August 2003.
Most of the young victims claim that the accused threatened them with a knife or screwdriver. They were usually attacked in the lift or the staircase of the buildings where they lived. Psychiatrists are expected to give evidence tomorrow.
