New claims about Wollongong abuse

Fresh claims

The Catholic Church in Wollongong is facing fresh claims that it failed to follow up alleged acts of sexual abuse by its priests, reports the ABC.

Former Catholic school principal Jim Walsh intends to tell the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse that he suspects two former priests from the Illawarra were never investigated by police or charged.

'It is my belief that there are still some who haven't been unearthed,' he said. Mr Walsh is calling for fresh investigations to determine what happened.

The ABC contacted the Catholic Diocesan Office in Wollongong but received no comment.
