Paraguay priest subject of new investigative report

For immediate release: Thursday, June 05, 2014

Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis, Director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (314 566 9790, SNAPclohessy@aol.com)

A lengthy and troubling new investigative report on a priest in Paraguay, accused repeatedly of child sexual abuse and adult sexual misconduct, shows that he is still around young people now, plus being second-in-command of a Catholic diocese in Paraguay. Bishops in dioceses where this predator priest worked - Switzerland, Argentina, Scranton, and Winona – must do more to stop him from hurting others. And Paraguay's bishop must at least suspend him immediately pending further investigation.
