Church admits allegations over bishop

Church admits allegations over bishop


The Roman Catholic church in Belgium has admitted that its former head tried to persuade a man to delay making public that a bishop had sexually abused him as a child.
The Church confirmed the accuracy of transcripts published in Belgian newspapers of a meeting between Cardinal Godfried Danneels, the victim, and the bishop who abused him.

Cardinal Danneels suggested that the victim should accept an apology, or wait until the bishop had retired before making his disclosure.
