Multiple Complaints Against Catholic Church In Iceland Received

Published March 15, 2013

Approximately ten people have made claims of sexual and other violent against the Catholic Church in Iceland. A time frame for filing claims against the church expires today, RÚV reports.
Last November it was revealed in a report on the Catholic church that 8 people had accused that teachers and principals at Landakotsskóli of sexual abuse from 1954 through 1990. Many other students accused the school of psychological abuse. School principal Rev. Ágúst Georg, and a teacher, Margrét Muller, were both accused of brutally sexually and physically abusing children for decades.
The governing body of the Catholic Church will make all final decisions on the claims that have been submitted and will then issue an apology to victims or other compensation, as they decide is warranted.
