Government Delays Publication of Dublin Abuse Report

Original article

The Government has reportedly delayed publication of the report into how the Dublin archdiocese handled allegations of clerical sex abuse between 1975 and 2004.

The findings of a special commission of investigation were expected to be published this week after the High Court ruled last week that all but one chapter could be made public.

However, reports this morning say Justice Minister Dermot Ahern has instructed his officials to return to the High Court to seek clarification of certain matters.

The Attorney General is reportedly concerned about the possibility that the report could impact on a number of court cases.

The High Court ruled last week that all references to one person should not be published as they could jeopardise criminal proceedings.

However, it said the remainder of the report could be published.
