The chief executive officer of the Belgian telephone company Belgacom NV has been charged with inciting 'debauchery and prostitution' by leasing sex telephone lines, Reuter reports from Brussels.

A spokesman said the charges against Belgacom's Bessel Kok were identical to those laid against the state-owned company's chairman, Benoit Remiche, in February. The 'Pink Telephones', as they are called, generated a 1.4bn franc (pounds 27.1m) profit for Belgacom last year.
