Vatican Investigated for Crimes Against Humanity

The Center for Constitutional Rights in New York City on behalf of SNAP has written to Mr. Luis Moreno Ocampo, a Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court at the Hague, to investigate the "responsibility of four high-level Vatican officials for the systematic rape, sexual violence and torture of children and vulnerable adults by priest and others associated with the Roman Catholic Church." The ICC File No. is OTP-CR-159/11. SNAP has received 500 from 65 countries, including victims, whistleblowers, etc.

And, from the Huffington Post,

The juvenile sexual abuse crisis will become more and more expensive for the church. Apparently the problem of juvenile sexual rape by priests in African nations and India is ongoing, severe and just beginning to come to light. When the scope of the scourge of child abuse and juvenile rape in the developing world comes to light, the Vatican is likely to take a huge hit. If (when!) these human rights cases are finally heard in the Hague, the defendant (the Vatican) stands to lose a fortune.
