Church of Scotland urged to apologize for abuse
A commission probing into sex abuse in the Roman Catholic Church in Scotland has asked it to make a public apology over the sex abuse scandal within the church.
“An apology must be made in a way that is unmistakeable and unequivocal,” the commission said in its report.
Tasked with handling allegations of report, the commission was formed following a series of scandals that hit the Roman Catholic Church in Scotland
The commission, which was led by Rev Andrew McLellan, has made eight recommendations, including calling for support for survivors of abuse to be an “absolute priority”.
“Nothing in our independent report is more important than our first recommendation: that support for the survivors of abuse must be an absolute priority for the Catholic Church in Scotland,” McLellan said at a press conference in Edinburgh on Tuesday.
