Italian bishops ’not legally obliged‘ to report pedophilia – gazzettadelsud.it
Rome, March 28 – Italian bishops do not have the „legal obligation“ to report cases of child-sex abuse by priests to the judicial authorities, according to guidelines released by the Italian Bishops Conference (CEI) Friday. The guidelines said, however, that bishops had a „moral duty to contribute to common good“. „Not having the role of a public official, the bishop does not have the legal obligation to report (cases) to the judicial authorities, aside from the moral duty to contribute to the common good,“ the guidelines read on child-sex abuse cases.
They added that bishops must take „special care“ in selecting candidates for the priesthood. They also stressed the importance of „rigorous attention to exchanges of information about candidates to the priesthood who move from one seminary to another“. The Church’s image has been tainted by child-sex-abuse scandals in many parts of the world, including Italy, in recent years. Pope Francis has taken several steps to repair some of the damage, including the nomination of a new anti-abuse commission this month.
ROME — Italy’s bishops have adopted a Vatican-backed sex abuse policy that says they have no obligation to inform police if they suspect a child has been molested. The Italian Bishops‘ Conference said the guidelines published Friday reflected suggestions from the Vatican’s office that handles sex abuse investigations.
Victims have long denounced how bishops systematically covered up abuse by shuffling pedophile priests around while keeping prosecutors in the dark. Only in 2010 did the Vatican instruct bishops to report abuse to police — but only where required by law. The Italian guidelines cite a 1985 treaty between the Vatican and Italy stipulating that clergy aren’t obliged to tell magistrates about information obtained through their religious ministry. The guidelines remind bishops, however, they have a „moral duty“ to contribute to the common good. ……
