Italian consumer group presses for Mahony probe


Rome, March 7 - An Italian consumer association is
pressing forward in its motion to investigate Cardinal Roger
Mahony and his role in allegedly covering up instances of priest
sex abuse in the United States.
On Thursday, Codacons filed a motion with Rome prosecutors
to convene with the leaders of US-based SNAP (Survivors Network
of those Abused by Priests) as expert witnesses.
Named in the motion were SNAP directors David Clohessy and
Barbara Dorris, who are in Rome advocating for issues related to
sex abuse in the Church to be a priority in electing a new pope
at the upcoming conclave.
Last Friday, Codacons submitted a request to investigate
Mahony if he went to Rome, which he did.
Shortly before arriving, the retired archbishop of Los
Angeles was summoned to answer questions under oath about a
visiting Mexican priest who in 1987 is believed to have molested
26 children.
In its initial motion, Codacons said "we must bring to
light whether there were any Italians who were victimized".
