Sauvé said around 80% of the casualties were men, as per the Related Press.

“The Catholic Church, after the circle of loved ones, is the climate where the pervasiveness of misuse is the most noteworthy by a critical degree,” Sauvé said.

The issue is foundational, and sexual brutality isn’t restricted to a couple of substitutes wandering from the crowd, Sauvé told CNN before distribution of the report.

“When advised of misuses, (the congregation) didn’t make the definitive move important to shield youngsters from hunters.”
