He was found guilty if molesting the boys between 1996 and 2013 when he was the head of VAE charity organisation, which placed volunteers in Kenyan schools.

According to BBC, Harris was also convicted for four counts of possessing indecent images of children.

In his judgment, Judge Phillip Parker described Harris as “a significant risk” to young boys and his Kenyan victims had been left “used, degraded, and humiliated”.

“The mental scars will almost certainly never heal,” Judge Parker said.

BBC stated that the case is one of the first of its kind using legislation that allows British citizens to be tried for sex offences committed abroad if it is also an offence in that country.
