Twin Cities Archdiocese fund for abuse victims to reach $130M
New insurance settlements boost archdiocese payout plan for 400 abuse victims.

The fund for victims of clergy sex abuse would double from a proposed $65 million to $130 million under an amended bankruptcy reorganization plan filed Tuesday by the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis.
The increase comes primarily from new insurance settlements with the archdiocese. The archdiocese would contribute about $13 million to the fund, as would the parishes.
The proposal was swiftly criticized by victims’ attorneys as being too easy on insurers and too stingy on the part of the archdiocese.
More than 400 people have filed claims against the archdiocese in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, alleging its clergy sexually abused them as children. Under the new plan, each victim would receive an average payout of about $300,000....
Former Guam priest admits abuse, says church knew
11 November 2016
A retired priest in Guam says the island's Catholic Church leadership has known for decades about sex abuses committed by clergy since the 1950s.
Louis Brouillard, who is a confessed abuser, made his comment in a statement released in connection with civil lawsuits filed by several former altar boys, who allege sexual abuse at the hands of Guam priests decades ago.
Pacific Daily News reports Mr Brouillard saying his only form of punishment for molesting at least 20 boys at the time was to say prayers - as instructed by the then Archbishop Apollinaris Baumgartner.
Mr Brouillard, who is now 95 and living in Minnesota, said his sexual contact with children was known to other priests, including the Archbishop Baumgartner, who led the church on Guam for 25 years from 1945.
Mr Brouilliard served as a priest on island from the late 1940s to 1981.
He says the Catholic Church should be honest and truthful regarding what happened on Guam during his time there.
3 more child sex abuse lawsuits filed against Guam priests
USA Today Network Haidee V Eugenio, Pacific Daily News (Guam) November 17, 2016
HAGATNA, Guam — Archbishop Anthony S. Apuron and former priest Louis Brouillard, along with the Archdiocese of Agana, face three new lawsuits alleging child sex abuse, which were filed Thursday afternoon by two former altar boys and by the estate of a deceased former altar boy.
The lawsuits are possible because of a recently passed Guam law that lifts the civil statute of limitations for those accused of abusing children, as well as the institutions that supported them....
Diaz, a resident of Barrigada, alleges that other priests and representatives of the Archdiocese of Agana, including Bishop Apollinaris Baumgartner and other defendants, were aware of Brouillard's sexual abuses.
But Diaz said these other priests deliberately remained quiet and withheld such information from third parties, including his parents and law enforcement authorities in order to protect Brouillard and the archdiocese "thereby placing their loyalty above their duty to protect the minor children and their legal responsibilities."
On Oct. 3, Brouillard released a signed statement admitting to sexually abusing at least 20 boys, and asked for forgiveness from his victims. Brouillard's first public admission of his sexual abuses of boys on Guam was in August, during a phone interview with Pacific Daily News.
Brouillard has said the Catholic Church leadership on Guam knew about his actions for decades but he was only told to say prayers as a penance....
HIV-ridden 'DEVIL' who had sex with kids in £3 'cleansing' faces just FIVE YEARS in jail
A MONSTER with HIV who claims he was paid £3-a-time to have sex with children as young as 12 for "sexual cleansing" is facing only five years in prison.
By Henry Holloway / Published 17th November 2016
Eric Aniva, better known as the Hyena, claims the girls as young as 12 took "pleasure" in the abuse he subjected them too while he was paid by their parents in a "sexual cleansing ritual".
HIV-positive Aniva confessed to having unprotected sex with 104 women and girls as part of a his bizarre rentalservice.
He did not tell families who hired him for the sexual initiation about his status before having sex with the women and girls....
The “sexual cleansing” is common practice in the southern region of his home nation Malawi.
Women and girls are expected to participate at various points in their life – such as when they hit puberty, if they have an abortion, or if their husband dies.
Young girls are sent to "initiation camps" by their family before they hit puberty where they are taught how to have sex by older men....
Presidential spokesman Mgeme Kalilani said: “While we must promote positive cultural values and positive socialisation of our children, the president says harmful cultural and traditional practices cannot be accepted in this country.”
He added: "These horrific practices, although done by a few, also tarnish the image of the whole nation of Malawi internationally and bring shame to us all.”....
Naivasha locals raid witch doctors havens after kids mysterious deaths
Nov. 17, 2016 By GEORGE MURAGE
Operations came to a standstill in Karagita estate, Naivasha, after residents conducted a major operation targeting witch doctors.
They moved door to door looking for the "traditional healers" accused of being behind their woes.
Trouble started two weeks ago when two children were reported missing and later found murdered in what are believed to have been ritual killings.
Police are holding a 12-year old boy in connection to the mysterious murders.
During the raids, residents found paraphernalia used by witch doctors to 'treat' their patients. Pictures of church pastors, women, and men from neighbouring areas were also found in one of the homes that was raided by more than 300 residents.
Youth leader Elijah Ngotho said the witch doctors were to blame for the disappearance of the minors in the area.
He said the operation was meant to rid the area of fake healers, a majority of whom he noted were from neighbouring countries.
