Santiago, Chile, Feb 28, 2018 / 13:08 pm
A Vatican investigator has met with some alleged victims of sexual abuse perpetrated by Marist Brothers in Chile.
Archbishop Charles Scicluna, the pope's envoy to Chile who is investigating accusations of negligence against Bishop Juan Barros in other abuse cases, met with alleged victims of abuse by Marist Brothers on Feb. 27, apparently broadening the scope of his mandate in the country.
In August 2017, the Marist Brothers reported that a member of the congregation had admitted to abusing 14 boys in Chile.
Earlier this year, the Marist Brother began a canonical investigation of allegations of sexual abuse in Chile by some of its members.
