December 03, 2012
The Australian Catholic bishops are setting up a special council to work with the government’s commission investigating sexual abuse.
The new group will include bishops and their representatives, and will work directly with the government Royal Commission, which is investigating sexual abuse. In announcing the establishment of the new group, the bishops said: “Our hope is that, in its search for truth, the Royal Commission will present recommendations ensuring the best possible standards of child protection in our country.”
