Vatican refuses to share sex abuse investigations with UN

 Reuters 09 December 2019

The Vatican has refused to provide a United Nations panel with information on the Church's internal investigations into the sexual abuse of children by clergy, arguing that its policy was to keep such cases confidential. The UN Committee on the Rights of the Child put some tough questions to the Vatican relating to sexual abuse ahead of direct questioning in January. However, the Vatican’s response has been criticised by children’s rights groups as disingenuous and misleading. (436 Words) - By Naomi O'Leary
