Catholic Church’s systematic abuse cover-up in the USA

16 November 2014

The Pope played a leading role in a systematic cover-up of child sex abuse by Roman Catholic priests.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

“Deetman intimidated abuse victims to prevent investigation by parliament”

Today, 00:53

Wim Deetman has intimidated board members of an organization that stands up for victims of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church to prevent a parliamentary inquiry. This reports Argos radio.

Deetman was chairman of the commission of inquiry into abuse in the church.

The commission was set up by the Roman Catholic Church in the Netherlands. Wim Deetman is a Christian Democrat Appeal party politician.

In December the final report of the Deetman commission was published. It showed that tens of thousands of children were abused between 1945 and 1981 at Catholic seminaries and boarding schools.

Compelling way

A few months later, four members of the victims’ organization KLOKK had a conversation with Deetman. He asked the four people “with binding effect” not to ask for a parliamentary investigation.

A parliamentary inquiry was initially a mandatory requirement by the victims. Two weeks before the meeting KLOKK wrote that there was “every reason” to urge a parliamentary investigation.

Emails

However, the board members gave in to the request by Deetman. Board member Annemie Knibbe: “Deetman actually wanted to force us to do no parliamentary inquiry”. Argos also says it has emails showing that Deetman had already long before pressured KLOKK to abandon the requirement for a parliamentary investigation.

Deetman said to have threatened to stop investigating if KLOKK survivors would keep insisting on parliamentary inquiry: here.
