Malta- Predator priest banned from contact with minors, SNAP responds
For immediate release: Thursday, August 21, 2014
A priest from Malta has been banned from being in contact with minors until his court proceedings have been concluded. We are glad this alleged predator is banned from being in contact with minors and hope it is vigilantly enforced.
The priest from Gozo was a school teacher and involved with the scouts. According to news reports, law enforcement officials have not reached out to scout officials for information. We urge church and law enforcement officials to reach out to all organizations the priest was involved with and beg anyone who saw, suspects, or suffered child sex crimes to come forward, speak up and start healing.
(SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, is the world’s oldest and largest support group for clergy abuse victims. We’ve been around for 25 years and have more than 20,000 members. Despite the word “priest” in our title, we have members who were molested by religious figures of all denominations, including nuns, rabbis, bishops, and Protestant ministers. Our website is SNAPnetwork.org)
