Database of Accused Argentine Priests.
We have examined news and court archives to identify more than 70 clergy in Argentina publicly accused of sexually abusing minors and vulnerable adults. As of Octoberat least nine appeared still to be in active ministry: Most of these cases involve alleged abuse that occurred in the last 20 years; the online public record contains very little information about clergy sexual abuse in Argentina before In Enrique gonzalez ruiz acoso sexual harassment, most of these cases were reported by the victim or the victim's parents to law enforcement within two to three years of occurrence.
We know from abuse data published elsewhere that such prompt reporting to civil authorities by victims is atypical. Most children who are sexually abused, especially by Catholic priests, never report their abuse; those who do report usually do so decades later. In Australia, Ireland and the Netherlands, all of which have fewer priests and Catholics than Argentina, church officials have admitted to totals many times larger.
This collates information from media coverage and court filings, which exist only because of the courage of survivors and the diligence of journalists. The database is entirely dependent on their work and a tribute to it.
