• La Salle Catholic Church investigates three new complaints of sexual abuse, two of them in Galicia

  • Abuses The PNV asks Sánchez to form a group of experts to investigate pederasty in the Church

The President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, has decided that the investigation into the

abuses committed within the Church

be carried out through the Ombudsman with the help of a commission created for this purpose and made up of experts and other groups.

Sánchez had already advanced that he had an idea about how to deal with the investigation of these abuses but that he would not make a decision until he

met with one of the victims, the writer Alejandro Palomas

, whom he received last Thursday at the Palacio de la Moncloa.

Finally, according to El País and Moncloa sources have confirmed to Efe, there will not be a parliamentary investigation commission and the work of collecting all the data will be carried out through the Ombudsman, an institution headed by

Ángel Gabilondo


But it will be

Parliament that must endorse this path

promoted by Sánchez, since the socialist group in Congress will present a non-law proposal on Monday in which the Ombudsman is entrusted with writing a report on abuses in the Church.

A task in which the institution will have an independent


commission that is intended to be made up of experts, representatives of the victims, the Church and various public administrations.

The objective is to determine responsibilities, repair the victims and

plan public policies

aimed at preventing and dealing with these cases, and, for this, the report that is made will be sent to both Parliament and the Government.

Sánchez has been defending the need for this investigation regardless of the decision of the State Attorney General's Office to ask the regional prosecutor's offices to send him all the complaints and complaints in

process about assaults

and sexual abuse of minors committed by religious.

"The Prosecutor's Office has done what it has to do," the President of the Government stressed this week before meeting with Alejandro Palomas, the writer who revealed that he was the victim of sexual abuse by a professor at La Salle de Premià de Mar (Barcelona). ) when he was 8 years old.

Palomas, after his meeting with the President of the Government,

expressed his satisfaction with Sánchez's commitment,

and this Sunday, after learning of the decision that it will be investigated through the Ombudsman, he has written on social networks that "today is a great day".

"The echo of many small voices is,

added together, an earthquake

," he added.

Sánchez has finally chosen to entrust the task to the Ombudsman instead of supporting an investigative commission in Congress as they defended in an initiative United We Can, ERC and EH Bildu that was processed on

Tuesday by the Chamber Table


The PSOE had already expressed its doubts about the effectiveness of this route since they claim that they intend that the investigation

does not become a show


The spokesman and general secretary of the Episcopal Conference, Luis Argüello, also considered this week that a commission in Congress is not the right place to investigate cases of

pedophilia in the Church

because "political issues and the need for support will have more influence than the real interest of the victims".
