The witness giving evidence now is Father Cuthbert Madden, current abbot of Ampleforth.

This is well worth watching, and for all sorts of reasons.

For one thing it's a chance to see a good barrister in action.

They're finished for the day, but they'll be back tomorrow.

Did any of you watch it?

Just got in, OMG. I'll have a look at that as I have been following the Ampleforth issue. There again it appears to be the underlying case that cases involving abusers had been kept 'in-house' and at Ampleforth it appears that a previous senior benedictine had actually approached victims of an abusive monk ahead of the police- the police made the point that this should not have occurred.

There is another strange case I notice mentioned in the media today of some member of a religious order living on an island I've never heard of who had a long career in abusing youngsters as well and it seemed to be something of an open secret.

The BBC carried a story on the Ampleforth situation - see post 423

Jane Dziadulewicz, a Safeguarding consultant and a former Coordinator of the RC Diocese Safeguarding Commission, is now giving evidence.

Update

The Hearing starts at 19 minutes in,with evidence from an anonymous victim.

There's then an interlude with Ms Dziadulewicz's evidence starting at 3 s 48 minutes.

Even if the topic itself doesn't interest you you may want to watch a really good barrister in action.

The Herrings into the RCC's English Benedictine Congregation are still going on.

Here's a live link to what's happening now; an OFSTED inspector of residential establishments, including boarding schools, is giving evidence.

Note the comments about even in more recent times the monks had a 'tell them nothing' attitude.

Few more jailings might soften their cough.

The IICSA Public Hearings continue, and they're returning to Roman Catholic Institutions.

Tomorrow, Tuesday, a series of Hearings will question witnesses about how the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Birmingham dealt with reports of Child Abuse.

The IICSA has its own YouTube channel
and its likely that all the Open Hearings will be televised Live.

Cardinal Nichols and Archbishop Longley are expected to be among the witnesses.

Top Catholic bishop to be questioned over child abuse scandal

Sad news.

His Eminence, the Cardinal, is unwell.

Cardinal Nichols postpones abuse inquiry appearance over mystery illness

Cardinal Vincent Nichols is said to be recovering after being taken unwell during a Remembrance service on Sunday.

The most senior Catholic leader in England and Wales was forced to leave a ceremony at Westminster Cathedral early.

A statement released by the Catholic Church said the 73-year-old had since been seen by a doctor. It did not disclose the nature of his illness.

Cardinal Nichols has been deemed unfit to give evidence to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse as planned this week ...

His appearance he been rescheduled for 13th December.
