HAGATNA, Guam – The latest on allegations of child sex abuse in Guam’s Catholic Church
A lawyer for four former altar boys has filed a new civil lawsuit against the Catholic Church in Guam, Archbishop Anthony Apuron and Father Louis Brouillard over child sexual abuse.
A statement was released by the men’s attorney Tuesday afternoon in Hagatna. Three of the men, now in their 50s, were altar boys in the 1970s under Apuron, who was a pastor at the time. They allege Apuron molested them during sleepovers.
The fourth man, now in his 70s, was a student and former altar boy in the 1950s when he says Brouillard molested him. Brouillard, 95, admitted to The Associated Press in August that he may have molested 20 boys during his time in Guam.
Guam passed a law in September lifting the statute of limitations for civil lawsuits in child molestation cases.
The new leader of the Catholic Church in Guam will immediately assume all responsibilities in the archdiocese while its suspended archbishop faces a church trial for allegedly sexually abusing altar boys….
Guam had been under an apostolic administrator since June when Archbishop Anthony Apuron, 71, was relieved of his duties after several former altar boys accused him of sexual abuse. He is facing a canonical trial in the Vatican.
Three men jailed over Bristol child abuse ring
One man sentenced to 16 years and two to eight years after girls as young as 14 were subjected to ‘degrading and violent’ abuse Press Association Tuesday 1 November
Three men have been jailed for their part in an inner-city sex ring involving the abuse, rape and trafficking of young girls.
Victims as young as 14 were subjected to sexual abuse that was “degrading, violent and horrible” in Bristol. Some of the girls were given drugs and alcohol and “pestered again and again” for sex by the men, who were mostly older teenagers.
Bristol crown court heard that the rapes became “routine” and the men regarded some of the victims, who cannot be named, as “cheap and easy”….
Seven men went on trial accused of 46 charges. Three were acquitted after the jury failed to reach verdicts and another man was found not guilty of the two charges against him.
The trial, which came after an investigation codenamed Operation Button, was the third in a series of prosecutions of Somali men for child sexual exploitation and drug offences.
In two earlier trials in 2014, after an investigation codenamed Operation Brooke, 14 men were jailed for more than 100 years between them….
“These defendants befriended these vulnerable young people who were still at school, grooming and sexually exploiting them,” she said. “Their systematic abuse over a number of years slowly eroded their confidence and made them think these crimes were normal behaviour.”…

The Battle to Stop Ritual Abuse by Neil Brick
For over 25 years, survivors and their advocates have worked to stop ritual abuse by educating the general public about these crimes. Through an intense struggle this research has been made public and survivors have been helped.
A backlash continues, covering up crimes against children and protecting a hierarchical and unjust social structure that exists by propagandizing and mind controlling its members. Exposing the backlash and its true motives and how their work continues to promote social injustice will be discussed in this presentation.

11 people said they were sexually abused as children by the former leader
There was also evidence of physical violence in the 1970s and ’80s period

Children at a ‘cult-like’ yoga ashram were separated from their parents, sexually assaulted and threatened with violence if they reported abuse, a royal commission has found.
Satyananda Yoga Ashram was insensitive and defensive in its handling of abuse complaints from the 1970s and ’80s against its former spiritual leader, Swami Akhandananda Saraswati, the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sex Abuse found.
Ten women and one man gave evidence they had been sexually abused by Akhandananda as children at the ashram at Mangrove Mountain on the NSW Central Coast.
Children as young as four, including one with brain damage, were physically abused at the ashram by Akhandananda or his former partner, Shishy, fourteen former residents reported.
Physical abuse ranged from slaps to repeated striking with heavy objects, while discipline included hard labour, starvation, and humiliation through public nudity, the commission found…
Guatemala Raids Hasidic Group Suspected of Child Abuse
Josefin Dolsten September 14, 2016
(JTA) — Authorities in Guatemala raided the compound of a haredi Orthodox sect living there, separating children from their parents, after allegations of physical and mental abuse surfaced.
Israel’s Justice Ministry said Tuesday that the Central American country had obeyed its request to crack down on the Lev Tahor group, according to Orthodox news website Kikar Hashabbat.
The Guatemalan government suspected the sect of performing child marriages and abusing members, including children.
The Justice Ministry said it was in touch with Guatemalan authorities to ensure the safety of Israeli citizens, including minors, who are members of the group, according to Kikar Hashabbat. The report did not specify how many people are currently members of the group or in what city the compound in question was located….
Leader of cult-like Ontario church jailed for 18 months for assault
The abuse inflicted by Fred King included squeezing a child’s hand with crushing force, and beating a young mean stripped of clothes in front of his mother.

Wed., Sept. 14, 2016
OWEN SOUND, ONT.—The former head of a cult-like church in Chatsworth, Ont., is headed to jail for 18 months.
Fred King, 57, pleaded guilty earlier this year to nine counts of assault — relating to his time as leader of the Church of Jesus Christ Restored from 1978 to 2008 — and he was sentenced Wednesday in court in Owen Sound, Ont.
The abuse included squeezing a child’s hand with crushing force for fighting with a sister, and beating a teen in church in front of its members after she’d tried to run away.
He also beat a young man stripped of clothes in front of his mother, and then left him standing outside for hours at night as mosquitoes bit him.
Justice Clayton Conlan called the litany of physical abuse that King — who was known as “the prophet” — admitted to in court in May particularly disturbing as he accepted the sentence recommended jointly by the Crown and defence…..
