Christian Brothers ‘knew sex assaults widespread’

DOCUMENTS uncovered during the investigation into child abuse prove the Christian Brothers were aware that sexual abuse of children in their care had occurred at an “unacceptably high” level, the child abuse report reveals.

It reveals that the “Rome Files” — archives which came to the attention of the brothers themselves during the commission’s investigations — made it impossible to contend that the issue of abuse and, in particular, child sexual abuse of boys, was not an urgent and continuing concern to the congregation.

“The scale of the problem as revealed in these documents was very serious. When other features of abuse are taken into account, there is reason to believe that the amount of such abuse was substantially greater than is disclosed in these records”.
