Outrage in Argentina after two priests are detained for allegedly abusing deaf kids
“This is like opening Pandora’s Box,” is how one prosecutor, Alexander Gullé, described the investigation into allegations of sexual abuse of deaf children at a Catholic school in Argentina’s Mendoza province.
“Every minute,” he told reporters, “we see different circumstances, different facts … I am frankly embarrassed about the direction in which the investigation is taking us.”
The case that Gullé is talking about is one in which a priest who years ago had been accused of sexually abusing deaf children in Italy – but was not sanctioned by the Vatican – allegedly went on to abuse children in Pope Francis’ native Argentina.
1 in 5 New York Kids Are Sexually Abused. Help Prevent That
The CDC reports that 1 in 5 children are sexually abused.
9 out of 10 of the perpetrators are never brought to justice and never appear on sex offender registries.
They are protected by New York State laws.
