Over 200 abuse claims from German Jesuit schools
Catholic World News - May 27, 2010
A German investigation has yielded 205 complaints of abuse in the country's Jesuit-run schools.
Ursula Raue, who was commissioned by the country's Jesuit leaders to conduct an independent probe, reports that she has unearthed complaints against 46 different staff members at the schools, including both Jesuits and laymen. The complaints include allegations of both sexual and other physical abuse. Most involve incidents that reportedly occurred two or more decades ago.
