Dutch Cardinal remained silent about pedophilia of assistant-bishop

  1. In his just-published biography by journalist Ton Crijnen the Dutch cardinal Ad Simonis admits that he knew since 2000 that there were accusations of pedophilia against the assistant bishop of Utrecht Jan Nienhaus, who passed away later that year. Only in 2014 it became known that the Catholic Church had found in 2012 that Nienhaus was guilty of four cases of pedophilia. In 2011 it became known that Simonis had already in 1991 protected another pedophile priest.
