Once again a post about paedophile Priests, on new reports just out about Holland and Belgium.
An independent Dutch inquiry into child sexual abuse committed by Catholic priests said it found “tens of thousands” of victims since 1945, identifying 800 alleged perpetrators ( Priests ).
Tens of thousands of children were exposed to “mild, severe or very severe sexual behaviour” by clergy or lay workers in the Dutch Catholic Church over a 65-year period between 1945 and 2010, the commission said in its final report.
Most were priests, but the figure also includes lay workers. “Of these 800people, at least 105 are still alive.”
Another Clerical Abuse Report into paedophile priests came out to-day, although the full report is not to be published for another three weeks or more.
The report looks back as far as 1975, investigated and interviewed men and woman who were molested by these paedophile priests.
These two links are to short local newspaper reports.
One priest convicted in 35 years
Ex-bishop apologises over abuse
A lot of the people involved took it so badly that they became drug users, alcoholics or committed suicide.
See here for a post about priests and sex abuse i made a few months ago.
Five dioceses were involved, one in the South of Ireland and four in Northern Ireland, lots of paedophile priests and children.
