'' [...]
After this year the community’s resources, both government and institutional, should be focused on providing effective redress and implementing regulatory and other changes designed to ensure that so far as possible no child is abused in an institutional context in the future. Survivors have waited too long for an effective response to their suffering and the future protection of Australian children must be given the highest priority. These objectives can only be fully achieved following the delivery of our final report. "

De Kinderbescherming zoekt naar mogelijkheden om de zorg voor de terminaal zieke 10-jarige Amir uit Emmen op ,,een veilige manier’’ weer over te dragen aan zijn vader en moeder.

Kinderbescherming: doodzieke Amir had met spoed specialistische hulp nodig

Dagblad van het Noorden 




Dat zegt woordvoerder Richard Bakker van de Raad voor de Kinderbescherming. Het doodzieke kind is anderhalve week geleden bij zijn ouders uit het asielzoekerscentrum in Emmen weggehaald.


Het jongetje lijdt aan een ongeneeslijke stofwisselingsziekte. Hij is uitbehandeld en na weken opname uit het ziekenhuis ontslagen. Zijn Afghaanse ouders zeggen dat hij hoogstens nog een paar maanden te leven heeft. Het kan ook veel sneller voorbij zijn.”


Woensdag wordt de rechtszaak tegen de kinderbescherming in een besloten zitting in Assen behandeld.

Maar ons is gegarandeerd dat de veiligheid niet in het geding is."

Holy See Press Office Communiqué, 15.09.2017

On August 21 last, the Department of State of the United States of America notified the Secretariat of State, through diplomatic channels, of a possible violation of laws relating to child pornography images by a member of the diplomatic corps of the Holy See accredited to Washington.

The Holy See, following the practice of sovereign states, recalled the priest in question, who is currently in Vatican City.

Having received such information from the United States government, the Secretariat of State transmitted this information to the Promoter of Justice of the Vatican Tribunal.

The Promoter of Justice opened an investigation and has already commenced international collaboration to obtain elements relative to the case.

It should be noted that, as provided by the laws in force applicable to all preliminary inquiries, the investigations carried by the Promoter of Justice are subject to investigative confidentiality.

The statement did not identify the cleric, but Italian news media reports and an American official familiar with the investigation said it was Msgr.Carlo Alberto Capella, who was ordained in Milan in 1993 and entered the diplomatic corps in 2004. He has also worked as a diplomat in Hong Kong and as the Holy See's liaison to Italy.
September 15, 2017 
WASHINGTON—Following this morning's bulletin from the Holy See that a Vatican diplomat based in Washington had been recalled to face an investigation for alleged violation of child pornography laws, the President of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, Cardinal Daniel N. DiNardo of Galveston-Houston has issued the following statement:
"This is a serious issue. We hope the Holy See will be forthcoming with more details. While we don't know all the facts, consistent with our Charter, we reaffirm that when such allegations occur, an immediate, thorough, and transparent investigation should begin in cooperation with law enforcement and immediate steps be taken to protect children. 

The protection of children and young people is our most sacred responsibility."

Jacobus aan de ketting. Wie zei U dat Franz Kafka is? vroeg de hittepetit boven een lepel saromapudding

Mijn jas is bijna droog, gelukkig wel want het seizoensgebonden op en neer sjouwen van waslijn naar droogrek is tot daar aan toe, maar ruim een jaar geleden belandde ik onderaan de trap en mijn schouder is nog steeds knap pijnlijk, maar maandag vergat iemand haar telefoons bij mij op tafel. 


Ik had verwacht dat de lezers-mailbox van Het Parool zou exploderen. Niks. Ik wil bij dezen laten weten dat de column van Roos Schlikker van een paar weken terug over de val, en als gevolg daarvan de coma van haar moeder mij zeer aangreep.

Mijn hart brak toen ik haar verhaal las, en hoe zij met zo veel liefde over haar moeder schreef. Afgelopen zaterdag brak het weer. In deze column beschreef zij een parallelle situatie die zich had afgespeeld nadat haar moeder gevonden was door haar vader.

In Pauw maandag vertelde ze dat haar vader zich op het moment van de val niet in hetzelfde huis bevond maar gealarmeerd door vrienden daarheen gegaan was en 112 gebeld heeft.
Dat belooft niet veel goeds, als dit de 'normale' gang van zaken is
Wat daarna gebeurde beschreef Roos in haar column. Wat een verschrikking, trauma op trauma. Wat een schande. En toen ook nog een agent had gezegd dat 'ze blij mochten zijn dat we in Nederland wonen', sloeg de angst me om mijn hart.

Dat belooft niet veel goeds, als dit de 'normale' gang van zaken is. Dit intimiderende bureaucratische systeem waaruit de menselijke maat verdwenen is. Ik hoop dat het OM en de politie op zijn minst excuses aanbieden.

Ysabel Mavis Arnold, journalist 7 June 1937 - 18 July 2017

KLIK


"In Cavan there was a great fire
Judge McCarthy was sent to inquire,
It would be a shame,

if the nuns were to blame,
So it had to be caused by a wire."

Dogerel penned by 
Brian Ó Nualáin (aka Myles na gCopaleen) 
Secretary to the Tribunal of Inquiry.



Marcus Williamson
Independent

Mavis Arnold was the journalist and writer whose investigative work exposed the abuse suffered by children in Ireland’s network of industrial schools. Published in 1985 as Children of the Poor Clares, and co-authored with Heather Laskey, the book was the first to show how orphaned children had been neglected and suffered in the Church-run establishments.
A central theme of the book is a fire which broke out in 1943 at St Joseph’s, an orphanage in County Cavan run by nuns. Thirty six people, including 35 girls and a member of staff, lost their lives as a result of the blaze. A report into the fire issued soon after stated that the deaths were due to lack of emergency procedures and fire-fighting training.


However, based on testimonies of survivors and rescuers, Arnold instead suggested that the nuns’ first reaction had been to keep the girls locked inside the building, so that they would not be seen on a public street in their nightclothes.
The harrowing account goes on to detail the regime of physical and emotional abuse, humiliation and malnourishment that existed – not only at St Joseph’s, but at countless other institutions across the country. Arnold had struggled to find a publisher as the fear of the power of the Church led to the book being rejected by 15 southern Irish publishers. She eventually found one in Belfast who was willing to go to print. 
Revised edition 2012
Disclosures by Arnold, and an initial drip-feed of information from whistle-blowers, soon led to a cascade of testimonies emerging in books and in film, such as The Magdalene Sisters (2002). An official commission to inquire into child abuse gave its report in 2005, but it was not until eight years later that the Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, formally apologised for the state’s role in running the institutions.
Ysabel Mavis Cleave was born in 1937 at Mussoorie Hill Station, near Dehradun, India, and spent her childhood in Sligo. She was educated at Dublin’s Alexandra College and Trinity College, where she obtained a diploma in social studies. At Trinity she met the English journalist and author Bruce Arnold, whom she married in 1959.
In 1969, while working as a journalist, she collaborated with Gemma Hussey to establish the Women’s Progressive Association (later the Women’s Political Association), with the aim of getting more women to run for election. 
In the early Eighties, The Irish Times revealed that the Arnolds’ phone had been tapped because Bruce’s journalism was perceived as a possible threat to national security. She quipped that those listening in would have had to endure “earfuls” of talk about the “women’s movement”.
It was around the same time that Arnold first heard about the industrial schools, which would lead to her best-known work in Children of the Poor Clares, first published in 1985 and re-issued in 2012.
Arnold later trained and worked as a psychotherapist, helping people to overcome the impact of trauma. She was been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2008 and latterly lived at Carysfort Nursing Home, Glenageary.
Her husband Bruce said: “Mavis and I had a great life together. We shared everything. I will always love her. Her life story lives on after her ... She was always on the side of the oppressed and disenfranchised.”

Het was een eerste officiële erkenning hiervan door de hoogste vertegenwoordiger van de katholieke kerk in België.

Thousands of Stolen Generation Children, some just babies, have had their lives permanently affected after they were charged and given criminal records under state government policies that systematically deemed it a crime to be an Indigenous child “in need of protection”

For decades, Uncle Larry Walsh lived with a mystery. As a Taungurung man who was
taken from his family as a young child, there’s a lot he doesn’t know about his early years. But one thing seemed particularly strange.

De Nederlandse rechts­psycholoog Peter van Koppen schreef zelfs ‘een vernietigend rapport over de betrouwbaarheid van de getuigen. Maar één van de Surinaamse rechters vond dat te mooi om waar te zijn en veroordeelde De Graaf’, reageert Van Oosten.

Youth commish asks for statutory rape age coverage to be raised from 12 to 16

GMS News
06-08-2016



The National Youth Commission on Friday asked both houses of Congress to raise the legal coverage of statutory rape from 12 years old to 16 years old.

In a statement, the chair of the NYC's Committee on Social Inclusion and Equity called attention to the bigger picture behind the priest who was recently arrested for allegedly soliciting sex with a 13-year-old girl.

“If only our laws recognize teen prostitution as rape, that monsignor who allegedly abused that 13-year girl would be charged with rape and most probably he would not be out on bail today," Commissioner Perci Cendaña was quoted to have said.

"With the proposal of the NYC, sexual intercourse or sexual relations with a child under 16 years of age would be penalized as rape, regardless of whether or not there was force, threat, intimidation, deprivation of reason, fraud, or grave abuse of authority," the statement added.

Statutory rape is rape or sexual activity in which the victim is below the age of consent. Republic Act 8353, or The Anti-Rape Law of 1997, currently states that sexual activity with a person aged below 12 is considered rape, even if none of the other circumstances it listed is present.
Cendaña noted in the statement that their proposal will also help decrease the incidence of teen pregnancy in the Philippines.
“We observed that many young girls give birth to children fathered by older men," Cendana was quoted to have said.
"This is most prevalent among girls from impoverished families who are impregnated by older men who offer financial stability or an escape from poverty," he added.
The present law states that child prostitution and other sexual forms of abuse is punishable by reclusion temporal or imprisonment of 12 years and one day to 20 years.
Monsignor Arnel Lagarejos, who was out on bail since Tuesday after being caught soliciting sex with a minor, is facing raps for trafficking and child abuse, but not rape.
The victim's mother reported receiving anonymous calls asking her to drop the case against the suspended priest.

Pope to decide on priest accused of child trafficking: prelate

ABS - CBN News
06-08-2017


MANILA - Pope Francis will have the final say on whether the Filipino priest caught with a 13-year old girl will be expelled from the priesthood or not, Archbishop Emeritus Oscar Cruz said on Sunday.

Cruz told radio DZMM that the most serious punishment the Church can impose on Msgr. Arnel Lagarejos is to strip him of his priesthood.

Lagarejos was arrested in Marikina last July 28 while allegedly on his way to a motel with a 13-year-old girl.

Cruz said Lagarejos' case will be sent to a congregation of the clergy who will then make a recommendation to Pope Francis.

"Ang magde-decide lang ay ang Santo Papa. 'Pag sinabi po ng congregation na ito po ang aming recommendation, yes or no, no yes. Ang Santo Papa naman sasabihin n'ya yes or no," Cruz said.

The Pope's decision will be final, he said.

Lagarejos was released on August 2 after posting a bail of P120,000. Church authorities have already relieved Lagarejos of his duties and banned him from talking to minors.

The priest is facing charges of trafficking, but Metro Manila police chief C/Supt. Oscar Albayalde said the girl's parents or the Department of Social Welfare and Development can still file a rape case against the priest.

Chief Superintendent Romulo Sapitula, Eastern Police District director, has ordered a thorough investigation of the case following reports that the priest already met with the minor twice and had sex with her once.

Clerical Abuse of Children, a Case to Answer

3 August 2017

The recent arrest of a Catholic clergy, a monsignor and parish priest, accused for allegedly trafficking a 13-year old minor arrested in his vehicle with the child on the way to a motel in Marikina is highly unusual. He went under procedures for being charged with alleged violation of the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act. 


Most cases of alleged clerical child abuse go unreported or are covered up in the Philippines as has happened in times past. In other countries also, the scandal of clerical child abuse has left thousands of child victims without redress, help, therapy or a chance for justice for having been raped and sexually molested and trafficked.
The Philippines’ Child Protection Law otherwise known as Republic Act 7610 has a provision in Section 6 that is designed to criminalize such an act where a child is taken to a secluded place, in a vehicle or a motel, by an adult not her relative for purposes of sexual abuse. This provision of the law is to prevent any act of rape taking place and to bring the suspect to justice.
The institutional church, that is, the hierarchy in many countries has been shown to have failed in its obligation and duty to protect children and actively pursue clerical child abusers when the evidence was strong and clear. In the past the church institutions in different countries even facilitated payoffs to parents of child victims and tried to use influence with the authorities to have charges against priests and religious dropped. Other clergy were moved to other parishes when complaints of child abuse were made.
In many cases, there was no action by church authorities to protect the child and report the alleged abuser to the authorities for the alleged crimes. There have been big changes in church procedure in dealing with child abuse cases by clergy nowadays and a zero tolerance policy is in place thanks to Pope Francis.
Cardinal George Pell from Australia, the highest Vatican official to ever be charged, is facing alleged complaints of having abused children and allegedly covered up other similar cases by clergy. While we must respect the principle that everyone is considered innocent until proven guilty and not to be falsely accused, on the other hand, when the evidence is clear, then each person has a case to answer.
The case of the monsignor in Marikina is serious as he was apprehended on the way in his vehicle to the motel with the 13-year old child. The mother reported it to the police so it is presumed that she knows the age of her child. He had a gun, which he surrendered to the authorities. The girl previously told social workers that the man brought her to the motel before in June and warned her “at gunpoint” not to allow other customers to “book” her.
Everyone has to answer for their behavior no matter what station they hold in life. The higher their ascendency and position, the greater their responsibility to answer the charges and all are to be dealt with equally before the law. No privilege or power ought to excuse anyone from facing the truth.
In our experience helping victim-survivors of child sexual abuse and seeking justice for them, the majority of abusers are in fact the neighbors and so-called friends of the family. Then, the worst offenders are step-fathers and the mother’s live-in partners and the biological father. See the result below:
– Biological fathers: 17
– Step-fathers and mother’s live in partners: 20
– Neighbors and/or acquaintances: 32
– Biological family members (excluding fathers): 7
– Non-biological family members (relatives by affinity): 12
– Police/person in authority: 3
– Grandfathers: 3

This just indicates how vulnerable children are to the crimes of adult against them when they are so weak and dependent. The youngest child in our Preda Foundation home for abused girls is 6 years old. The average age of the victim-survivors is 14 years old. The fact there have been no child abuse cases brought out in public against clergy is very significant and it can be presumed they are being protected.
We have had legal success every year with the brave and courageous children who are empowered to testify in the court and speak without fear about the abuse they suffered. We win an average of four convictions a year. This year so far we succeeded with the prosecutor to have three cases of child sexual abuse and multiple rape elevated to the regional trial courts in their respective jurisdictions. We hope for another three cases we filed to go to trial this year also. The prosecutors, now mostly female, are dedicated and are people of integrity.
With constant care, gathering and presentation of evidence that is done for all victim-survivors, we can pursue justice no matter how difficult it is. We receive challenges and counter-charges against us but our staff are resilient and knowledgeable and can answer the counter-charges and win. We have to take a stand and fight on for justice with and for the children. We hope that everybody will support victim-survivors so that justice, elusive as it maybe, will prevail.
