Part of today’s report on the Vatican by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child.
Recommending a new investigation into the Magdalene Laundries.
Mark Kelly, Director of the Irish Council For Civil Liberties (ICCL) writes:
“This is a devastating critique of systemic child protection failures by the Vatican which continue to have a profound effect on many people in Ireland. The report zeros in on some of the most egregious forms of abuse committed in this State under the ultimate authority of the Vatican. In the light of these unprecedented findings, the ICCL is calling upon the Pope’s diplomatic representative in Ireland, Archbishop Charles John Brown, Papal Nuncio and Dean of the Diplomatic Corps to provide a detailed account of the action that will be taken in this State to ensure that these shortcomings are rectified”
