French Bishops launch ‘independent’ commission on sex abuse in Catholic Church

(CNN)French bishops have announced plans to establish an “independent” commission to look into the sexual abuse of minors within the Catholic Church dating back as far as 1950.

The appointed panel would “seek to understand the reasons which led to the way these cases were handled” by the Church, the Conference of French Bishops said in a statement on Wednesday.
The conference pledged to publish a report outlining the commission’s findings within two years. Details, including the name of the person spearheading the investigation, will be announced in the coming days, it added.
