Delaware: priests’ personnel files released
February 16, 2012
Following a bankruptcy settlement that included $77 million in payments to abuse victims, personnel files of priests of the Diocese of Wilmington who committed abuse are being made public.
“The very men who engineered the cover-up of [abuse of] children, who made it a point that predators maintained their anonymity, are still in power today, still hold positions of prestige in this diocese today,” charged Anne Barrett Doyle of BishopAccountability.org.
“If the bishop thought there was information that warranted one of the monsignors being removed, that would have happened already,” countered diocesan spokesman Robert Krebs.
