Statement by Nicky Davis of SNAP Australia (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests) +61 0422 538 440
The UN Committee Against Torture, meeting in Geneva this week, questioned Australian Government officials. They want answers regarding Cardinal George Pell's refusal to hand over documents about child sex crimes by Catholic officials, to the Royal Commission.
Committee members raised the issue of Cardinal Pell's response to Justice Peter McClellan, Chair of the Royal Commission, that his request for files held by the Vatican was "unreasonable" as they were "the internal workings of a sovereign state".
