In 2013 I made contact with Archbishop Scicluna about the abuse that took place at the Comboni’s Junior Seminary at Mirfiled.
Being the Chief Investigator during Pope Ratzinger’s pontificate, I believed that Bishop Scicluna would listen to me and then act.
Contact was initially made through a telephone call in which I spoke with him when he was in Malta. After which, I emailed him several times.
When Archbishop Scicluna was in Scotland in 2014 investigating allegations of sexual misconduct against Cardinal Keith O’Brien, it was arranged, through his secretary, that a meeting could take place between myself and the Bishop.
I was informed that Archbishop Scicluna would telephone me to arrange such a meeting. I am still waiting for that call, as I am still waiting for a response to my emails.
Kevin Deighnan is also waiting for a response to his letter to Bishop Scicluna.
“Omerta” The Code of Silence, in this case prevailed.
“All bishops and cardinals must see this film,” he said, “because they must understand that it is reporting that will save the church, not ‘omerta.’”
There is reference to some of the above correspondence on this blog, see:
