A study commissioned by the German bishops' conference reports the sexual abuse of thousands of children in that country over a period of 70 years. The report was scheduled to be released later this month, but was leaked Wednesday to German media.
The report was commissioned by the German bishops' conference and scheduled to be presented on Sept. 25 at the autumn plenary session of the German bishops, as CNA Deutsch reported.
Its methodology is substantially different from that of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury report.
The study documents sexual offenses against "3677 predominantly male minors" between 1946 and 2014, Der Spiegel reported
