US: Cardinal hid millions from sex abuse victims

July 3, 2013

America’s most senior Roman Catholic cleric [Cardinal Dolan] obtained permission from the Vatican to move $57 million ($62 million) of church funds into a trust to shield it from sexual abuse victims seeking compensation….

However, on June 4, 2007 he proposed moving the assets to “an autonomous pious foundation” he had established a month earlier to fund the upkeep of cemeteries. The letter was published among more than 6000 pages of documents released as part of a settlement between the archdiocese and lawyers for 570 people with lawsuits pending against it.

    Indeed, and it’s disgusting to see how these people seek to evade their obligations.
