UN: Vatican child rights report 13 years overdue

GENEVA The Vatican has failed to send the United Nations a report on child rights that is now almost 13 years overdue, the head of a U.N. panel has told The Associated Press.

Like all countries that have signed the 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Vatican is required to submit regular reports on its efforts to safeguard child rights.

But the U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child, despite sending repeated reminders, has received no explanation from the Holy See for why it missed a 1997 deadline, according to the committee's chairwoman Yanghee Lee. In the years since, the Vatican has come under intense scrutiny over its handling of child sex abuse allegations around the world and recently admitted that up to one in 20 priests may be implicated.

"I've made contact with the Holy See on several occasions," Lee said in a recent telephone interview. "I haven't received anything."

Officials at the Vatican's mission in Geneva declined comment Thursday, saying the Catholic city state's envoy to the U.N., Silvano Tomasi, was unavailable.

Tomasi refused to discuss the report last month, saying he was "only the messenger," not the author of the report.

A Vatican representative told the U.N. last year that the report was being "finalized as we speak."

Appearing before the U.N.'s Human Rights Council in September, Hubertus Matheus Van Megen said "a paragraph will be dedicated to the problem of child abuse by Catholic clergy."

The Vatican has faced claims that it has covered up clerical sex abuse around the world, such as by not investigating allegations or transferring accused priests to other duties without punishing them.

Van Megen told the Geneva-based council that the church was "very conscious of the seriousness of the problem" but insisted critics had misrepresented the situation.

"While many speak of child abuse as pedophilia, it would be more correct to speak of ephebophilia, being a homosexual attraction to adolescent males," he told the rights council. "Of all priests involved in the abuses, 80-90 percent belong to this sexual orientation minority, which is sexually engaged with adolescent boys between the age of 11 and 17 years old."

"From available research we know now that in the last 50 years somewhere between 1.5 and 5 percent of the Catholic clergy has been involved in sexual abuse cases," he said.

While the Vatican delivered an initial report in 1995, the second, third and fourth reports are now overdue, according to Lee. This puts it on a par with the Caribbean nation of St. Kitts and Nevis. Only five Pacific minnow states the Cook Islands, Nauru, Niue, Tuvalu and Tonga have failed to deliver any kind of report.

Mongolia, Senegal and Togo, which also had a 1997 deadline, have since filed their second reports.

Lothar Krappmann, another member of the committee, said many governments see the reports as a nuisance that has little impact on the way they protect child rights.

"Still, in many cases the reports aren't pointless because they give non-governmental organizations the opportunity to pick up on themes and influence policy through public channels," Krappmann told The AP.

Lee, the committee chairwoman, said the treaty contains no penalties for countries that fail to deliver their reports on time or even at all.

Hi there A Brother

It is simply because they don't do it unless they have to pay penalty or are exposed in the world press medias, likewise The Watchtower Societys, Gamaliel Bodys, in question of their pedophile policies :grin:

Look at this BBC interview, he doesn't have the curage to forward an excuse and let them show his face....and se how slimy he is in his response, well knowing that they only respect countries where there are laws to report child molesters.

Hi there to All

Both the Catholic Church, the Pope and The Watchtower Society, Gamaliels Body, claims to be Gods choosen representatives or channel on earth :grin:

The result of their doctrines of Men have sent 10th of thousands and other thousands of adults and children into a premature death and are performing double standards and hypocrisy which minimize the pharisees to amateurs.

Jesus Christ states in John 8:43,44 who is behind murdererers and liars as their father...

43 Why do ye not understand my speech?[even] because ye cannot hear my word.

44 Ye are of [your] father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Hi again A defending brother of Gamaliels Body...men

It seem that the Watchtower Society Gamaliels Body are following in the close footsteps of the Vertican and Pope, without reporting Pedophile cases to the Police and sociel authorities, unless they get penealty in some Countries.

This interview from BBC shows cleary who was responsible for the Watchtower Society, Gamaliel Bodys pedophile policy and pls. reamrk what he say, well knowing thet there are multiple countrie arount the world where there is no obligation to report molesters to the Police and Social Authorities, where they can continue their evil cover ups inside the organiation, demanding two wittnesses rule as before...:huh:



Take a look at the funeral brochure authorized by the remaining Gamaliel Bodys and ask yourself how many faithfull Brothers and Sisters who have got a funeral brochure, those who haven't been responsible for any doctrine which have sent thousands and other thousands of Brothers, Sisters and their Children into a premature death and protected pedophiles and molesters through their policy...
