Former Minister: Study Necessary on Sexual Abuse in Roman Catholic Church

Former Minister Wim Deetman has said that a scientific study has to be undertaken in to the nature, size, circumstances and responsibilities for sexual abuse in the Dutch Roman catholic church. This study should cover the period between 1945 to present day. Deetman had been asked by the Dutch Conference of Bishops and an organization who represent people who fulfill religious functions in the Catholic Church (KNR) to lead the initial investigation in to these problems. These bodies now need to decide whether to accept Deetman’s conclusions.
