11:04 am
out of. his work was because did it because he didn't seem quite a cultural critic i pulled the premise. i want to show you something these are the ten cardinals that are usually considered are the boss powerful of the vatican this is the the c. nine right it's an advisory board and here joe miller director of the congregation of the doctrine and the face among these ten cardinals four are accused of having covered up pedophile priors you know that of course. what you think of it i have no no but to get our knowledge about any of them. i just said to me that you knew it i know that there are allegations but i don't know what what is the the
11:05 am
background of these cases i am not the investigating if you want me to be more precise i'm sure ok george bell so he's here in australia a few months ago in front of the australian royal commission on sexual abuses within the church ear recognised knowing sexual abuses from australian priors but did not denounce them to justice so what do you think of him being in this he nine with that story i have been to australia last year i've travelled i have been in the diocese i met with three survivors from the school where we are now powell was at that time the vice director of the school and. willing gauge to cooperate with justice and it would cooperate in the sense of setting up a safeguard in measures in the same way he will this is future but he didn't
11:06 am
denounce sexual abuse it's very far and isn't the scene and it is it sucking for you are not of course shocking you know for him to be in this you nine and not have been denouncing her sexual abuse on minors you know for sure. school it has always in chile here. documents that as you is has waited five years after the first victim spoke out to take action and to remove the prized father correct. and sire father carriage about has been since a proven guilty by the vatican of sexual abuses is here still in the city nine. yeah i'm not responsible for the balance of things what is your think of it i'm not the one who decides on that but what do you think i think today was they as long as the bill wants something that thank you very much it seems then that only the pope has the power to punish his cardinals so why doesn't he take stronger action. maybe
11:07 am
because he too faced accusations in his homeland of argentina long before his election. when he was archbishop of buenos aires he apparently tried to have a pedophile priest acquitted. him when a serious along with god or rather diego maradona the pope is a star his face is everywhere. and yet some refused to share the sick on a graphical. in the city center we've arranged to meet a group of victims they were abused by priests in the archdiocese appointed serious . they learned pope francis when he was there archbishop.
11:08 am

11:09 am
you're going to. be you feel you need something you want to get the witnesses to know. it. as archbishop of buenos aires pope francis was seemingly deaf to the distress of these victims. but apparently it's worse in another case concerning other victims some believe he's willfully trying to divert the course of justice. for father grassa case the biggest pedophilia scandal in the argentinean church secretary who you know says are grassy was one of the best known priests in the country very influential and often in the media spotlight. with a rather less big head. to run a huge orphanage until some of the children there launched a complaint against him for sexual abuse in two thousand and nine he was sentenced to fifteen years in prison still today he's behind bars.
11:10 am
but the argentinean church did all in its power to have him acquitted. one public eye a go represented father crossties child victims. a trial spread to refute teen years and opposite him the most renowned attorneys in the land but also the catholic church. see no kit no saint that almost in an annual mean this. up by this it will not leave it was. almost they don't know if this will take us o.s.c. feet or miles over what he's going to see at that are going to see him in the open or sort of also what a sight is. don't be fooled by the cover which makes you think it's a book this twenty eight hundred page counter inquiry is a confidential internal argentinian church legal text. inside the children argues the falsifications lies deceit and invention even their own sexual
11:11 am
orientation is questioned. the conclusion is clear the court's decision was wrong rather to rossi had to be acquitted on appeal. one paragraph caught our eye. this work was commissioned in two thousand and ten by the argentine episcopal conference and i notably by its then president cardinal bergoglio now pope francis. so the pope did commission a counter inquiry to try to have a priest who had been sentenced for pedophilia acquitted. how did it said that he was a bergoglio the future pope actually sent it to the judges with a shrewd sense of timing before father across these various appeal hearings. one of the magistrates received a copy of the counter inquiry agreed to meet us. problems money case
11:12 am
a former appeal court judge and former minister of justice is today a high court judge. it's the first time he's spoken openly about the cross the case . he remembers very well the day he found this counter inquiry on his desk with a senior there is this this is even so visa as it is they were going through this away and so forth you know in absolute. case in the last. day i know anything. it is in a row now to see what equal that is and that will cost us more we thought of setting out those at the end of that joke you know that getting an idea if i water there. well get what it is he said that said that's what the impetus you also lead up places. where many of the in the fields had to defend their cause to suit the man. but finally useless
11:13 am
father grassi sentence was upheld at both the appeals court and high court. at the center of the counter inquiry commissioned by the pope when he was archbishop of buenos aires he counter four point four five victim of rafi. since the case blew up in the early two thousand it's the first time he's agreed to talk to reporters. he wants to remain anonymous because he's still afraid of reprisals. but soon i mean i say look i mean i see it i hear it at the table. now nationally custom built on a sort of all of us a show of course us goes up as an island he said also see additional demand. also said as they see what i hope to get but i guess something that's already out in the us already i can't help but i'm a. did that to
11:14 am
