German Catholic clergy prosecute 5,700 cases of sexual abuse report claims | German Catholic Church: German Catholic clergy commit 5,700 cases of rape

German Catholic Church: In German Diaspora, at least 600 young Catholic priests were abused, but the actual number of victims could be up to 10 times. This was stated in a report published on Monday.

According to the University of Monster, Diocese has an official record of 610 victims of abuse, according to AFP. That number is about one-third higher than the previous 2018 study. However, historian Natalie Povroznik, who was involved in the study, said there were “approximately 5,000 to 6,000 girls and boys” in the province.

What does the report say? ?

  • According to the report, at least 5,700 individual acts of rape were committed by 196 male members of the church’s clergy (183 of them clergy).
  • More than 10% of the members were found to be serial offenders. While less than 10% faced any kind of legal consequences.
  • The report said that abuse was rampant during the 1960’s and 1970’s, with an average of two cases per week in the province.
  • Three of the four victims were boys, most of them between 10 and 14 years old.
  • The study reported significant psychological consequences for adult victims, including depression and suicidal ideation, with 27 cases indicating attempted suicide.

Bishops will comment in detail on Friday.
Muenster Bishop Felix John will comment on the study in detail on Friday. The report’s authors accuse Jane, who has been a bishop of Monster since 2009, of failing to take action against abusers.

In an initial response Monday, Jane said she would “naturally accept responsibility for the mistakes I made in dealing with sexual abuse.”

The Catholic Church in Germany has been rocked by a number of reports in recent years exposing the widespread abuse of children by clergy.
