Dublin archdiocese abuse report ready for delivery
July 20, 2009
A commission investigating sex-abuse problems in the Dublin archdiocese will make its report tomorrow. The report will be delivered to Ireland's justice minister, Dermot Ahern, who will decide whether the full report should be made public. The report-- which comes on the heels of a devastating report about abusive practices in Church-run institutions for children-- will focus on the handling of sex-abuse allegations by archdiocesan leaders over the past 30 years, and will scrutinize the actions of 19 current or retired bishops.
