Bishop: Investigate Sexual Abuse in Catholic Church Independently

Ad van Luyn, chairman of the Dutch Bishops Conference, said on television that the sexual abuse in the Dutch Roman Catholic Church should be investigated independently, and not by the Church itself. In slightly over a week, the Catholic organization which deals with cases of sexual abuse, has received more than 200 complaints. Most of them concern the period of the 1950s to the 1970s. In a normal year there are about 10-20 such complaints.
