Victims lawyer hangs Cardinal out to dry

"In the case of our client the abuse had stopped years ago. It therefore seems unlikely that Danneels in this case will be prosecuted for gross negligence, although he has not intervened during that conversation when he was informed of the sexual abuse. But to speak of the charector of negligent breach, there must be action by the omission causing additional damage . This does not apply to this case, but possibly in other cases of sexual abuse by clergy, in which the Church has not intervened, although of which she was aware. "

Her client went to the Adrianessens Committee a few days after his interview with the Cardinal and one suspects the police a few days after that. The Cardinal can hardly be surprised at their reaction in the circumstances.
