For immediate release Friday, August 16

Statement by Barbara Blaine of Chicago, president of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (312-399-4747, [email protected])

An Argentine Catholic cleric alleged to have abused more than 50 children faces an appeal of his recent acquittal.

SNAP applauds the seven victims for appealing the court’s decision to free Justo José Ilarraz earlier this month from multiple charges of sexual abuse.

We urge officials at the Minor Seminary of Paraná to encourage anyone formally and currently involved with the institution who may have experienced, witnessed, or suspected abuse by Ilarraz to report to it authorities in order to lock-up this predator and protect children.
