MILWAUKEE (WKOW) — It turns out a bankruptcy reorganization plan filed by the Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee includes compensation for 33 more clergy abuse victims than originally announced.

A group called, ‘The Network of Those Abused by Priests’ is upset with the current agreement.

Officials with SNAP say thousands of pages of criminal reports are being kept secret, along with the names of clergy members they say abused children and who may still be in the ministry.

“If parents and families do not get to find out who these offenders are, where they are, what the church has done with them, who supervising them and can guarantee children are being reasonably by these individuals,” said Peter Isely, member of SNAP. “Then this bankruptcy has been a complete failure.”
