Government urged to delay publication of next child abuse report

Govt urged to delay publication of new abuse report
Support groups for victims of child sex abuse are calling on the Government to delay the publication of the official report into clerical abuse in the Dublin Archdiocese.

The report is expected to be presented to Justice Minister Dermot Ahern today.

It is understood to identify up to 450 people abused by priests in Dublin since the 1970s.

One in Four and the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre have requested a delay in the release of the findings as they are already under pressure trying to help the thousands of abuse victims who have come forward since the publication of the Ryan Report in May.
