Nuns on trial over sexual abuse of deaf children

Published on May 4, 2021 by

A second trial has started in Argentina over the systematic sexual abuse of deaf children at an institute run by the Roman Catholic Church.
Two priests and a gardener have already been sentenced, now two nuns and seven other female employees of the Antonio Provolo Institute are on trial for sexual abuse and corruption of minors in a case that has shocked the home country of Pope Francis.
With nearly 200 witnesses scheduled to testify, many of them requiring sign language interpreters, the trial could take up to a year.
