Religious sexual abuse of girls, new report

This 21 February 2019 CBS TV video says about itself:

Catholic bishops in the Netherlands have reportedly been covering up church sex abuse for decades. The country had been known for recognizing and compensating victims. Charlie D’Agata reports.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Deetman‘s second report will be published

Monday, November Mar 2013, 04:50

Update: Monday 11 Mar 2013, 08:30

The Deetman commission comes today with a second report on sexual abuse within the Catholic Church. The report focuses in particular on the abuse of girls and women, from 1945 to now.

Investigation by the committee, the president of which is former minister Wim Deetman, previously focused primarily on the state of affairs in Catholic boarding schools. Boys were educated there and therefore the focus was on male victims of abuse.


This new section includes more about abuse in institutions run by nuns, such as orphanages or homes for women with involuntary pregnancies. It also looks at abuse and violence within parishes, like by a parish priest or assistant priest.

After the presentation of the first report of the Deetman commission, Parliament had asked for a follow-up study.

Ms Annemie Knibbe, of Dutch clerical abuse survivors organization VPKK, reacted in a radio interview that the Deetman commission did not do its work thoroughly enough. Many abused women, she says, did not know there was this second Deetman investigation. Thousands of abused women, Ms Knibbe says, were not included in this second report.

  2. “Vergoeding misbruik boven 10 mln”

    Update: donderdag 9 mei 2013, 11:04

    De vergoedingen voor slachtoffers van misbruik in de Rooms-Katholieke Kerk lopen waarschijnlijk op tot boven de tien miljoen euro. Dat zei voorzitter Deetman van de commissie die onderzoek deed naar het misbruik, op Radio 1.

    Tot nu toe is 3,7 miljoen euro aan de slachtoffers uitgekeerd. Volgens Deetman heeft de commissie, die belast is met de uitbetalingen, pas de helft behandeld.

    “De zaak is nu op stoom en er komt nog heel veel aan”, zei Deetman. Of al het geld ook beschikbaar is, heeft hij zich nooit afgevraagd.”Er is een groot probleem en dat moet worden opgelost, linksom of rechtsom.”
