Hundreds of German choir boys abused over six decades – report…:

“At least 547 young members of the Regensburger Domspatzen boys choir in
Germany were subjected to physical and in some instances sexual abuse
over a period of 60 years, a new report says…

Presenting his findings on Tuesday, Mr Weber said the investigation had
found 500 cases of physical abuse and 67 instances of sexual abuse over
six decades.

However, he said he was unable to contact or speak directly to a number

be as high as 700.

Victims said the experience was like “a prison, hell and a concentration camp”.

Among
those singled out for criticism in the report was former choirmaster
Georg Ratzinger, elder brother of retired Pope Benedict XVI…

The Catholic Church has been hit with a number of scandals in recent
years. In the 1990s, revelations emerged of widespread abuse in Ireland
and at the turn of the century, more cases of abuse were revealed in
more than a dozen countries.

The UN has accused the Vatican of “systematically” adopting policies allowing priests to sexually abuse thousands of children.”
