The former Bishop of Broome, Christopher Saunders, allegedly sexually assaulted four youths, a Papal investigation has revealed.
According to 7NEWS, an investigation ordered by Pope Francis, called a Vos Estis Lux Mundi (meaning “You Are the Light of the World”), found that Saunders, 73, likely sexually assaulted four youths and potentially groomed another 67.
The investigation also alleges that the Bishop of Broome spent hundreds of thousands of church and charity money grooming the youths.
The investigation’s final 200-page report, obtained by 7NEWS, stated, “The Bishop has been variously described by witnesses as… a sexual predator that seeks to prey upon vulnerable Aboriginal men and boys.”
It continued, “During the investigation, four victims of sexual (delictual) acts were identified.”
“Sixty-seven additional Aboriginal boys and men were also identified as persons that may have been subjected to delictual acts or grooming behaviours by Bishop Saunders.”
