Former Archbishop in Poland Banned From Public Service For His Role in Cover Up of Sexual Crimes

 

The Vatican has banned the former archbishop of Wroclaw in Poland Marian Golebiewski from any public service after the investigation concluded his role in covering up sexual crimes from from 1996 to 2013. 

“The 83-year-old was ordered to "live in the spirit of penance and prayer" and he was banned from taking part in any public ceremonies and ordered to pay a "suitable sum" to a fund that helps victims of abuse”, reported Reuters. 

The Polish documentary “Tell No One” by brothers Tomasz and Marek Sekielski, which describes how crimes of sexual abuse were committed and how it was covered up in the church in Poland, has more than 23 million views on YouTube.

The Church, which wields strong political influence in predominantly Catholic Poland, has been rocked by a series of sexual abuse scandals in recent years.

The Vatican has also taken action against seven other Polish bishops accused of covering up sexual abuses in the last one year. 

In 2002, the Boston Globe published long investigative pieces describing how the church was involved in the systemic sexual abuse of children on a massive scale.
