10 de abril de 2019.

La Organización Mundial Ending Clergy Abuse (ECA), instancia que reúne a sobrevivientes de abusos en contexto clerical y a activistas por los derechos humanos, manifiesta su categórico rechazo y preocupación por la reciente sentencia del 1er Juzgado Unipersonal Penal de Piura, Perú, que condena al periodista Sr. Pedro Salinas, por considerar parte de su labor profesional como difamación agravada en contra del arzobispo de Piura y Tumbes, Sr. José Antonio Eguren Anselmi.

Rechazamos dicha condena toda vez que atenta contra la develación de crímenes de lesa humanidad ocurridos en el seno de la institución eclesiástica católica. En efecto, para que un abusador pueda cometer ilícitos constantes dentro de una institución requiere […]

That tacit agreement between the State and the Church that guarantees the impunity of Catholic priests from prison in Italy

APRIL 9, 2019 STATEMENT BY: Francesco Zanardi

Letter to the Papal Summit Committee


April 5, 2019

Dear members of the Papal Summit Committee — Archbishop Charles Scicluna, Cardinal Blase Cupich, Cardinal Oswald Gracias and Fr. Hans Zollner.

During and after the February Summit on Clergy Sex Abuse in Rome, Pope Francis made several public statements about survivors who were present that were disturbing, demeaning and simply false. He has made yet more remarks about us and that is one of the reasons why we are writing to you. In addition, he has taken several actions since then that has us concerned and perplexed because they appear to seriously contradict his Summit promises.

Specifically, we have five areas of concern:

First, on February 20, 2019, during the summit, when 12 survivor/activists were meeting with you at the request of Pope […]
