Valls appeals to French cardinal over child abuse allegations
French Prime Minister Manuel Valls says Cardinal Philippe Barbarin must “take responsibility” over an alleged pedophilia cover up. He is one of six people implicated in an investigation into a 70-year-old priest.
Valls told BFM TV on Tuesday that without wanting to overrule the Church or judges investigating the case, Barbarin “must take responsibility, speak and act.”
He stopped short of calling for Barbarin’s resignation but said “action, as well as words” were required.
Barbarin hit back at a press conference later, insisting for a second time: “I have never covered up pedophilia,” although he admitted he had made mistakes.
The scandal relates to an investigation into an elderly priest, Bernard Preynat, who was charged in January with historic child sex abuse.
Several victims have come forward making claims dating back to the 1980s. One of them, who was allegedly abused while in the Scouts, filed a complaint after he realized that the priest was still in service in 2015.
Prosecutors say Preynat has admitted the charges and was finally removed from service in May last year. But when the claims were initially investigated, he was just briefly suspended and then moved to another parish. Other victims have since come forward claiming to have been abused between 1986 and 1991.
Complaints have been filed against several senior officials in the Lyon diocese in eastern France, including Lyon archbishop Barbarin, accusing them of being aware of the abuse but failing to report the priest.
Barbarin has argued he was not Archbishop when the first complaints emerged against Preynat.
The Cardinal said he learned of Preynat’s “behaviors” in 2007 or 2008, and met with him “to ask if, since 1991, anything had happened; he assured me there had been absolutely nothing.”
French prosecutors are investigating whether charges of failure to denounce a crime and endangering the lives of others could be made in the context of the pedophilia investigation….
Poems About The Birth of The Self
The search for my true past came in distinct waves. This collection of poems includes some from the long period when I knew something was drastically wrong but didn’t consciously know what that was and some from the breakthrough when I discovered my never-bloomed self. The poems cover the outskirts of my awakening, my plowing through and arrival in the middle of awareness. When dissociated memories and emotions exploded inside, eventually they filtered into a poem. The horror transmuted itself. These poems are that record. I have regained a real, not imposed, self.
