The bishops of Switzerland ask those guilty of sexual abuse to come forward

2010-04-01

The bishops say they will enforce all the measures to prevent sexual abuse cases and carry out all punishments as stated in documents they approved in 2002 and revised in 2009.

A commission of experts is scheduled to study the cases from a psychological, social and legal point of view. The first step is to separate the offenders from children and notify the authorities.

The bishops recognize they didn’t take the matter seriously enough and ask for forgiveness for the errors committed by those who implicated their dioceses and religious orders. For that reason they say they feel “mortified” and “consternated.”

They also agreed to collaborate among the dioceses in Switzerland and at an international level.
