Report: Church of England ‘Colluded’ With Sex-Abuse Bishop
Senior officials in the Church of England “concealed” evidence of sexual abuse by a former bishop, an independent review found. The disgraced former cleric was sentenced to 32 months in prison October 2015 after admitting to abusing young men for more than two decades. The report criticizes former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord George Carey for withholding from police written abuse allegations in the 1990s. Carey’s successor, Rowan Williams, was also criticized for delaying reforms.
