Security cameras against sexual abuse by priests

A Roman Catholic diocese in southern India is considering using security cameras and other measures to curb sexual abuse by priests after a vicar was arrested on charges of raping a teenage girl, a spokesman said Thursday.
The bishop of the Mananthavady Diocese has also removed the Reverend Robin Vadakkancheril from his job as vicar of St. Sebastian church in Kottiyoor and from conducting any priestly functions, said the Reverend Nobel Parackal, a media officer for the diocese in Kerala state. 
Vadakkancheril was arrested late last month after a 17-year-old girl from his parish gave birth to a baby. Investigating officer Sunil Kumar said police are searching for at least five nuns who allegedly helped the priest cover up the rape and subsequent pregnancy
Kumar said the girl, after initially refusing to name the father of the baby, said the priest had raped her in the place where the church provided computer lessons. 
Kumar said the girl's family was bitterly poor. Her child has been placed in a local orphanage and the girl is being looked after by the town's child welfare committee, he said. 
Parackal said there were no previous complaints on record against Vadakkancheril. 
Sexual violence against girls and women is endemic in India and the shame associated with such incidents makes victims and families hide the crime. The girl never told her family about the rape and when her pregnancy became apparent her parents never made a complaint. A child protection group tipped off the police after the teenager gave birth at a local hospital, Kumar said. 
The case is one of several in which Indian priests have been accused of abusing minors, indicating that scandals that have convulsed the Catholic Church in the United States, Europe and Latin America have not spared Asia. In 2011, the Asian bishops' conference convened a special meeting on abuse and warned that “drastic and immediate measures” were needed to deal with the issue. 
The Vadakkancheril case has come to light as the Vatican tries to recover from the resignation of prominent abuse survivor Marie Collins from Pope Francis' sex abuse advisory commission, citing frustration over resistance to the commission's proposals within the Vatican. 
It also comes ahead of Francis' expected visit to India and Bangladesh later this year. 

Catholic church in India proposes to install security cameras after priest arrested for rape Muneeza Naqvi Mar 09 2017


The Catholic Church has sparked outrage in India after it blamed "consumerism" and bodily "temptations" for the rape of a 15-year-old girl. 
Priest Mathew Vadakkacheril, from Kerala in India, was accused of raping the child and later arrested. 
The girl was raped several times and became pregnant, according to India Today. The child has since been delivered at a private hospital and since taken to an orphanage, reportedly without the mother's consent.
Yet it is the response to the incident among the Christian community in India that is now making headlines.  
A Christian weekly magazine, which is backed by a Catholic Sabha or association, blamed thevictim for the event and said Mr Vadakkacheril may have momentarily “forgotten his position”. 
“Daughter, why did you forget who a priest is?" read an extract in the Sunday Shalom, according to an India Today translation. "He has a human body and has temptations. He may have forgotten his position for a few seconds, my child who has taken the Holy Communion, why didn't you stop or correct him?"
Father Paul Thelekat from the Bishops’ Council, also commented on the incident and blamed consumerism for the rape.
"Consumerism is indeed a situation affecting everyone in the world and priests are also in the world. It is in celibacy and in virginity the crisis become apparent first, then it will become a crisis of fidelity in marriage with extra-marital and premarital sex,” he told The News Minute. 
Women are presented as commodity both in media and in advertisements and all commodities are marketed with girls and women, where [the] human body is dehumanise[d]."

Church blames 'consumerism' and 'temptations of body' after Catholic priest 'rapes 15-year-old girl' Shehab Khan Mar 06 2017 

Ten days after the police arrested Fr Robin Vadakkumchery, prime accused in the rape and subsequent impregnation of a 16-year-old girl from Kannur district, and with just one day to go for his judicial custody to end, the Kerala Police is still trying to arrest the remaining seven accused in the case. These seven people include five nuns, an administrator and paediatrician at the hospital run by the church.

While Fr Robin is the prime accused in the case, all the others have been booked for covering up the rape, pregnancy and delivery.

The police investigation so far has revealed that a network of various Christian institutions carefully planned and covered up the crime – to save their own face, and to save one of their own.

And as the investigation progresses, the fact that an intricate network of multiple organisations spanning across two districts is working to thwart the investigation is clear.

Although the police team has combed a number of convents in the district, police sources told The News Minute that they are facing "practical difficulties" with regard to arresting the remaining accused.

Considering that there were multiple organisations and people involved in protecting Fr Robin, police suspect that the rest of the accused could also be receiving similar "support" from religious organisations they are part of.

How the Crime Was Covered Up

According to police, there was a huge network of Church officials at work in covering up the crime. To begin with, the minor girl was a student at a school under the Church in which Fr Robin was posted as a manager.

He raped the girl multiple times, after which she got pregnant.

On 7 February, the girl was taken to Christu Raj hospital, run by a Christian management. Police say that Fr Robin “donated” money to the hospital as reward for not reporting the incident to police.

The hospital administrator then agreed to admit the girl, while gynaecologist Dr Tessy and Nellayani Thankamma assisted in the delivery.

After the girl gave birth, Dr Hyderali, a paediatrician at the hospital allowed the baby to be discharged. The minor girl continued to get medical assistance for two days before she was allowed to return home.

Meanwhile, Nellayali Thankamma, Dr Liz Maria and Sr Anita from Christu Dasi convent in Wayanad took the baby from the hospital to an orphanage in Wayanad. Sr Anita drove a Maruti Eeco car to the orphanage. Two days ago, police seized the abandoned vehicle from Iratti in Wayanad district.

But while they’ve pieced the story together, police have been unable to arrest the other seven accused.

So far, FIRs have been registered against eight people in the case, including five nuns, one of whom moved the Kerala High Court on Tuesday to file an anticipatory bail application.

Cases under the POCSO Act have been filed against prime accused Fr Robin, Nelliyani Thankamma who assisted in the childbirth, gynaecologist at Christu Raj hospital in Kannur Dr Tessy, paediatrician Dr Hyderali, hospital administrator Ancy Mathew, Dr Liz Maria and Sr Anita from Christu Dasi convent in Wayanad.

Sr Ophilia, the Superintendent of the Holy infant Mary orphanage at Wayanad, where the baby was taken is the accused number 8.

Church Remains Silent

For its part, the Church has been largely silent. While Fr John Therakom was suspended by the Archdiocese after the Kerala government sacked the priest from the post of Chairman of Child Welfare Committee (CWC) for co-operating in the cover-up, there has been no word from the Church on the absconding nuns.

The Bishops Council had chosen to dismiss the incident, claiming it to be an "exception" among the 9,033 catholic priests in Kerala. The council also put blame on ‘consumerism’ and media.
