An 82-year-old Italian priest has been arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing boys in a school for the deaf in Mendoza in western Argentina.
Father Nicola Corradi is already known for alleged abuse
committed at a school for the deaf in Verona.
A spokesman for the Mendoza bishopric said Corradi, who
arrived there in 1996, may have been a beneficiary of the former
"malpractice" of shifting predator priests from one place to
another rather than denouncing them.
An Italian non-profit organisation, Rete L'abuso Onlus, has
denounced Corradi's abuse in Verona to the local Church, the
Vatican and the UN, demanding the creation of a commission of
inquiry into Italian paedophile priests.
