first_imgVictims of sex abuse in the Diocese of Raphoe fear a report into the abuse will NOT name and shame priests at the centre of the scandal.The report will be published tomorrow after months of speculation about its release.The report was compiled by Raphoe Auditor Ian Elliot who carried out a full investigation into a catalogue of abuse horrors going back to 1975. However a spokesman for the Diocese admitted that the report will not go into specific details of the “terrible deeds done by priests.”Michael Keane of Insight PR Consultants said the report was more about putting the right procedures in place for the future.But he stressed it will not contain the level of detailed sex abuse some victims may have been expecting.“It will not be like other clerical sex abuse reports where there will be huge chapters on all sorts of terrible deeds done by priests. “It will be an audit of the procedures which were put in place over the years and it will highlight the mistakes and ensure the right procedures are put in place going forward.“This is however a very thorough investigation carried out by an independent body,” he said.Although he would reveal the number of priests to be named in the report, Mr Keane said a full number as well as the number of crime committed against young people in Raphoe since 1975 will be revealed at a special press conference in Letterkenny tomorrow.However the man who first exposed the horrific chapter of sex abuse in the Catholic Church, former Garda Detective Martin Ridge, said the report was “another slap in the face for victims.”“Some of these people have been waiting decades for justice and now they are being told they will not get it. “It is simply another slap in the face for them. They are being denied justice once again.“The church and the people in it had more than enough time to compile this report and cover every last inch of what happened in Raphoe but that is not going to happen,” he said.It is estimated that between 10 and 20 priests could be named in the audit as being sex abusers.RAPHOE ABUSE AUDIT WILL NOT ‘NAME AND SHAME’ PRIESTS ADMITS SPOKESMAN was last modified: November 29th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:RAPHOE AUDITlast_img
