Outrage over US Catholic sex abuse cover-up ABC
January 23, 2013, 10:57 pm

Victims of child sex abuse by Catholic clerics in the US have voiced anger after newly released records showed church leaders discussing how to cover up priests' alleged crimes in California in the 1980s.

Prosecutors said they wanted to study the previously confidential records, including memos by then Los Angeles Archbishop Roger Mahony - although experts said the statute of limitations would likely prevent any legal action.

Excerpts from the documents were published by the Los Angeles Times, including exchanges between the now retired Cardinal Mahony and a top aide talking about how to conceal paedophile priests from law enforcement.

The records include secret memos between Cardinal Mahony and Monsignor Thomas Curry - his top aide on sexual abuse cases - about how to prevent police from investigating three priests who had admitted to the church that they had abused young boys.

Specifically, Monsignor Curry suggested stopping suspected priests from seeing therapists who might alert authorities about alleged abuse, or keeping them outside of California to avoid police investigations, the Times reported.

One such was Monsignor Peter Garcia, who admitted abusing children in mostly Spanish-speaking parishes for decades. He was sent to a New Mexico treatment centre, and Cardinal Mahony ordered that he stay outside California. . . . . . . . .
