The Jakarta Post – Weekly magazine Warta Minggu published by the Tomang Catholic parish in West Jakarta reported that at least 56 people were subjected to sexual abuse in Indonesia’s Catholic Church.
The report, titled “Sexual Abuse in Indonesian Churches: An Iceberg Phenomenon?”, was published on Sunday and is based on a discussion held at Atma Jaya University in late November to mark the international campaign 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence.
During the discussion, Indonesian Bishops Conference (KWI) seminary commission secretary Joseph Kristanto said that, while he did not have definitive data about the number of sexual abuse victims in Catholic churches in the country, his team had received reports from informants detailing at least 56 victims. “That number includes 21 victims from among seminarians and brothers, 20 nuns and 15 laypeople,” Kristanto said as quoted by Warta Minggu.
