The Catholic chaplain for one of Italy's biggest prisons has been arrested on charges of demanding sexual favours from inmates.
Police said Fr Alberto Barin, 51, had forced at least six male inmates, all of them non-Italians, to have sex with him in his office or elsewhere in the San Vittore prison in Milan.
A magistrate's arrest warrant said Fr Barin used his power and influence within the prison to "almost obsessively satisfy his sexual urges".
When Fr Barin managed to help get a prisoner released early, he would ask the inmate to come to his office before leaving to re-pay the favour by having sex, police said.
The priest also demanded sexual favours in exchange for cigarettes and basic necessities such as soap, shampoo and hair brushes.
The investigation began after an inmate told prison authorities, who then set up hidden video cameras in his office and elsewhere in the prison.
