Polish Church says 382 minors abused by clergy from 1990-2018
The report follows investigations into widespread abuse of minors by clergy in other countries - notably in Chile, the United States, Australia and Ireland - that have shaken the Roman Catholic Church to its foundations.
“This is an especially painful, tragic issue as it is connected with consecrated people, who devoted themselves to serving the church, other human beings. They have social trust and this social trust was so tragically violated,” Archbishop Marek Jedraszewski said at a news conference.
Polish bishops last year asked victims of past clerical abuse for forgiveness and began collecting data to “identify the causes of these deeds and assess their scale”.
The report said as many as 198 of the victims were below the age of 15.

Detective sues the LAPD for failing to protect her when a fellow officer she had an affair with 'raped her then threatened to share her nude photos with her children and husband if she ended the relationship'
A Los Angeles Police Detective claims she was raped and beaten by a fellow officer she had an affair with who threatened to distribute nude photographs of her if she ended the relationship - and her supervisors did nothing to help her.
Det. Ysabel Villegas filed her lawsuit on Wednesday against the LAPD for failing to act and defend her when Officer Daniel Reedy turned their once-consensual relationship into an abusive one and blackmailed her.
He threatened to distribute her sexually explicit pictures to her kids and husband if she ended the relationship, and eventually shared those pictures with the LAPD, the lawsuit says.
Villegas, who worked with the LAPD for 30 years, alleged Reedy assaulted, abused and extorted her, created a hostile work environment, and the police department failed to protect her from him, according to the Los Angeles Times.

6 Sneaky Signs a Trusted Adult Could Be a Child Sexual Abuser
Michael Jackson is now deceased and consequently he will never be convicted in a court of law, but many of Jackson’s alleged behaviors were typical of those exhibited by child sexual offenders who use grooming behaviors. Grooming behaviors are the behaviors and techniques a sexual offender employs so that they can engage in abuse without detection. Grooming behaviors are directed toward the intended victim, the child’s parents or guardians and the community at large. They generally follow a series of stages that may include selecting a vulnerable victim, gaining access to the child, developing trust of the child and their guardians, and desensitizing the child to sexual touch so the abuse can take place without detection. However, many of these grooming behaviors also overlap with behaviors that caring, involved adults engage in and thus it is often hard for adults to recognize them before abuse takes place.
The following behaviors could be potential indications of grooming.
