Two priests accused of sexually abusing minors at a school for deaf children in Argentina will stand trial Aug. 5.
The priests and a former employee at the Antonio Provolo institute will face charges of the abuse of more than 20 children, the AP noted.
One of the priests involved is Fr. Nicola Corradi, who is a member of the Company of Mary, an Italian religious community which operates schools for deaf children in several countries, including Argentina and Italy. The schools are named for Antonio Provolo, a nineteenth-century Italian priest who founded Corradi's religious community.
Corradi was arrested in 2016 along with Fr. Horacio Corbacho and other employees in connection with the abuse allegations, and the school was closed down.
