More reports of Roman Catholic Church sexual abuse

Updated: Monday Mar 1 2010, 20:45

Last weekend, sixteen reports were received about sexual abuse in the Catholic Church. The reports were to the legal aid commission, established 15 years ago by the bishops to provide assistance to victims of sexual abuse by priests and other church workers.

The number of complaints that came in last weekend is approximately equal to the number that the commission normally receives in one year. The reason for this increase is the coverage of sexual abuse at a Catholic boarding school in ‘s-Heerenberg.

There were several Salesian Fathers in the sixties and seventies who have sexually abused children.
