SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – A court in Granada in Spain charged 10 Catholic priests with sexually abusing altar boys in their care.
The judge in the case, Judge Antonio Moreno Marin, published a five-page brief earlier this week after charging the priests. The details of his initial findings make for grim reading, even for those who have dealt with previous abuse cases involving paedophile priests.
The investigation relates to the evidence of one of the altar boys, who claims that he was abused between 2004 and 2007 by a group of priests known as the “Romanones”. The brief states that the boy was 14 when the abuse began and says that the alleged ringleader, Roman Martinez, would invite him and others to a home he owned in Granada.
