Van Steenbrugge: “Statement about ‘blind spot’ shows that Bishop Bonny has still not learned from the situation”

“Sexual abuse in the Church is not a blind spot, but has been hidden away in a sophisticated and structural way. That statement by Johan Bonny shows that he still has not learned from the situation.” This is what Walter Van Steenbrugge says in a response to the bishop’s interview following the VRT Canvas program ‘Forgotten God’. As a lawyer, he defends several victims of sexual abuse by clergy. Following the example of politics, he also advocates a parliamentary investigation committee.
