The Public University of Navarra has published an independent report in which it identified 52 victims of sexual abuse committed in Catholic schools and institutions in the province since 1948.
The study was presented Feb. 11 at a press conference in which the Regional Government Minister for Migration Policies and Justice, Eduardo Santos, and the investigator from the Public University of Navarra and report coordinator, Mikel Lizarraga Rada, participated.
The report was carried out by the Public University of Navarra in coordination with the Navarra regional government and found that more than 31 priests and members of the Church, as well as 21 teachers, allegedly abused minors in 17 schools and religious institutions since 1948.
Lizarraga explained that interviews were conducted with the victims who contacted the university through the channels set up for that purpose.
