Two Catholic Clergy Face Court in NZ
Sydney Morning Herald [New Zealand]
November 2, 2006
Two Catholic clergy extradited from Australia to face child sex charges have been bailed to appear in court early next year in New Zealand.
In Christchurch District Court, Judge David Saunders granted the bail without plea and allowed a change of address next week as part of their bail terms.
Their address on bail remains suppressed, though it is known they will remain in New Zealand.
A second suppression order forbidding any further publication of images of the two men remains in place.
The court papers listed the charges that brother Rodger Moloney, 71, and father Raymond Garchow, 59, will face.
Moloney is charged with four counts of anal intercourse with a person aged under 16, 11 charges of doing an indecent act on a boy aged 12 to 16, and two charges of inducing a boy aged 12 to 16 to do an indecent act.
Garchow is charged with three counts of doing an indecent act on a boy aged 12 to 16, and five of inducing a boy of that age to do an indecent act.
Rob Harrison of Auckland was defence counsel for the appearance.
He passed up to the judge a memorandum about the bail conditions and suppression orders, which had also been counter-signed by crown prosecutor Kerryn Beaton.
The pair will not have to appear for the pre-depositions conference on January 18 as long as counsel is present. That session may set a date for a depositions hearing.
