Victims of child abuse within the Catholic Church say a Royal Commission is urgently needed
Prime Minister Julia Gillard is under increasing pressure to establish a national inquiry with a number of Federal MPs joining the push.
Mark Fabro from Survivors Network has told Dicko and Anjali a Royal Commission would be a huge step in the healing process.
Independent Senator Nick Xenophon has vowed to introduce a private members bill for a Royal Commission into abuse in the Catholic Church if the Prime Minister doesn't establish one.
Calls are growing for a national inquiry into allegations of widespread abuse with some Labor MPs also joining the push.
Senator Xenophon says a Royal Commission is what is truly needed.
Independent senator Nick Xenophon has criticised Australia's most senior Catholic, Cardinal George Pell, for claiming sexual abuse by church members is historic.
As he repeated his call for a national royal commission into sex abuse by the church, Senator Xenophon said Cardinal Pell was wrong to consign the epidemic of abuse to history.
Cardinal Pell told News Limited on the weekend that abuse and subsequent cover-ups were largely historic and not part of a systemic failing within the church.
But Senator Xenophon says victims are still suffering today and a royal commission is the best way to help them heal by uncovering the truth. (AAP)
Prime Minister Julia Gillard is expected to establish a royal commission into child sex abuse in the Catholic Church.
The demand for a national response comes after NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell last week announced a special commission to investigate allegations of abuse by clergy in the Hunter region and a possible cover-up.
A separate Victorian parliamentary inquiry is already examining religious abuse in that state.
Paul Murray on an announcement expected from the Prime Minister.
Prime Minister Julia Gillard has agreed to a royal commission into institutional responses to allegations of child abuse in Australia.
John Stanley speaks with Joanne McCarthy, an Investigative Journalist with the Newcastle Herald. Her 6 years of investigations have done much to bring the pedophile priests to account in the media.
On the streets where we live around Sydney there are families with youth who are unemployed, and considered long term unemployed. Jason Morrison looks at the suburbs and seeks out how we can fix this.
I do not believe that Demonising the Catholic Church is going to solve any problems here there are many other areas of Inquiry that would be better looked at or followed when it comes to Child Abuse in all of its disgusting forms! What about The Australian Law Courts (Conviction & Sentences) to be reviewed they are much to soft on Creeps who are charged with these crimes. An Inquiry into the Blue Card System on a National Level, so state borders do not cause problems, also current holders and issue of these cards to be reviewed periodically. Everyone should be held accountable not just the Catholic Church!Peter B Monday 12 November, 2012 - 3:07 PM
Im all for bringing paedophiles to justice whoever they are. But the timing is a little too convenient. Could this be the vehicle to fund the 300 billion dollars Clinton is going to demand from Australia this week. Everything that occurs in the next few months and has any financial ramifications will have everything to do with a financial bail out of America and little else. I know what parties own the Catholic Church so I have no problem with the end of their regime of terror. But why does the US refuse to stand like men and fight the 2 families face to face and eye to eye. Why do they continue to have nations like Australia do their dirty work. They are creating more and more enemy nations at a time when it is critical to maintain allies.Translation from Media to English Monday 12 November, 2012 - 2:53 PM
