Danish prosecutors, citing statute of limitations, drop most sex-abuse probes
Catholic World News - June 04, 2010
Danish prosecutors have dropped 26 of the 31 sex-abuse complaints that had been lodged against Catholic priests. In most of the cases, police said, the statute of limitations makes it impossible to bring criminal charges.
Danish Church leaders are conducting their own independent review of the sex-abuse charges, which will continue in all cases.
