Abuse Report to go to High Court

Original article
Friday, 31 July 2009

The Justice Minister is to refer the Dublin Archdiocese report into child abuse to the High Court for direction on whether or not to publish it.

Dermot Ahern was advised by the Attorney General and the DPP that publishing the report in its current form may prejudice some ongoing criminal proceedings.

The Minister said that he's anxious the report is in the public domain as quickly as possible but that he doesn't want to do anything that may harm the perpetrators of child sex abuse being brought to justice.

The report identifies 450 victims of alleged and proven child sex abuse.
