Dutch Church investigating abuse charges at parochial school

March 02, 2010

Leaders of the Salesian religious order have promised a thorough investigation of charges that some students were sexually abused while studying at a Salesian school in the 1960s. The inquiry has begun on the strength of a newspaper report, based on one pupil's charges. At a meeting next week, the Dutch bishops' conference will discuss whether the investigation should be extended to other Catholic institutions.
