Polish Official Visits Dominican Republic to Discuss Alleged Sex Crimes by Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski

May 29, 2015

We are grateful that a Polish official has gone to the Dominican Republic to discuss alleged child sex crimes by Polish Catholic clerics. We hope the trip results in secular criminal charges against one cleric and more charges against the other.


We especially hope defrocked Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski is sent to Poland from Rome and is put on trial. Catholic officials in Rome claim they’ll hold some sort of proceeding there about Wesolowski. But we’re very skeptical. It’s unjust and unwise to let any institution deal internally with serious child sex crimes, especially an institution like the Catholic hierarchy with a long, dreadful, well-documented and on-going track record of ignoring and concealing heinous sexual violence against children.
