New Scottish archbishop expected to cooperate with sex-abuse investigation

Catholic World News - August 30, 2013

Archbishop-elect Leo Cushley is expected to allow an independent review of sex-abuse policies after he is installed as head of the Edinburgh, Scotland archdiocese in September.

The incoming archbishop will reportedly adhere to the policy set by the Scottish bishops’ conference in 2011, and open archdiocesan files to independent investigators. Cardinal Keith O’Brien, the previous Archbishop of Edinburgh, had declined to cooperate with that policy. Cardinal O’Brien resigned in February amid charges of homosexual misconduct. His departure precipitated a series of complaints about failure to address abuse complaints.
