A former Marist Brothers principal was "not sure" as late as 1989 that committing a sex act against a child was a crime, the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse heard on Monday.
John Holdsworth, who left the order in 1999, went to a meeting between Gregory Sutton and the father of one his victims who had committed suicide.
The youth, identified as ADO, had told his elder brother that Sutton had molested him shortly before taking his own life.
