The commission’s head, Jean-March Sauvé, noted that the church not only failed to take necessary measures to prevent abuse but also turned a blind eye, failing to report abuse and sometimes knowingly putting children in touch with predators.

The commission has called on the French state to help compensate the victims of abuse, especially in cases that are too old to prosecute in court.
