Another Dutch Bishop guilty of Sexual Abuse

It has now become known that in addition to the late Jo Gijsen, the former bishop of Roermond, another Dutch bishop has been found guilty of sexual abuse of young boys. The complaints commission of Meldpunt Misbruik RKK has two years ago found Jan Nienhaus guilty in four cases. Nienhaus who died in 2000 is the former assistant bishop of the archbishopric Utrecht and the titular bishop of Breda. Wim Eijk, the cardinal of Utrecht has offered written apologies to the victims. They have also been paid an amount of money. The church has however kept all information about Nienhaus being found guilty silent for two years.
