Philip Pullella. Washington Post. 12/16/2003. VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - A top Vatican official said Tuesday he felt pity and compassion for Saddam Hussein and criticized the U.S. military for showing video footage of him being treated "like a cow." Cardinal Renato Martino, head of the Vatican's Justice and Peace department and a former papal envoy to the United Nations, told a news conference it would be "illusory" to think the arrest of the former Iraqi president would heal all the damage caused by a war which the Holy See opposed. "I felt pity to see this man destroyed, (the military) looking at his teeth as if he were a cow. They could have spared us these pictures," he said. "Seeing him like this, a man in his tragedy, despite all the heavy blame he bears, I had a sense of compassion for him," he said in answer to questions about Saddam's arrest. Martino was referring to the videotape released by the U.S. military which showed a grubby, bearded and disheveled Saddam receiving a medical examination by a military doctor after his capture in an underground hole Saturday. Martino was one of the Vatican officials most strongly opposed to the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

"Canadian sex abuse victims pursue claims against Christian Brothers." Irish Examiner. 01/30/2003. THE Canadian government did not sign any special deal with the Catholic Church to compensate people who had been sexually abused in religious institutions like the State has done here. Instead, it took the view that all victims of clerical sex abuse should be allowed to pursue their cases against the Catholic Church through the courts. However, when an avalanche of claims started going through the Canadian courts against Christian Brothers, the order pleaded inability to pay. The Christian Brothers had set up a trust fund for all their assets and based it in Dublin, which was outside the jurisdiction of the Canadian Courts. And this is how they pleaded inability to pay. This was revealed when a number of the Canadian abuse victims hired Irish accountancy firm KPMG to check out the nature of the trust fund and the level of the Christian Brothers' assets. Eventually the Christian Brothers in Canada accepted that they could pay €22 million in compensation and a large number of cases against them are still ongoing in the Canadian courts. But the Canadian Government has not agreed to pay any part of those compensation awards. Meanwhile, the Diocese of Dublin has set up a special fund, the Laurence O'Toole Trust Fund, to administer its assets. And it is expected that the €300,000 settlement agreed in the High Court on Tuesday will be paid to Mervyn Rundle out of that trust fund. There are 600 other alleged sex abuse claims against the Catholic Church pending in the Irish courts, according to the Courts Services Board. If each of those gets around €300,000 then the Catholic Church could be facing a final bill of €500 million, according to one legal expert. Labour's Justice spokesman, Joe Costello, said the Catholic Church is property rich and there is no reason why they cannot sell these assets to pay the compensation bills. Catholic church to study sex abuse claims in NI + ROI. A senior Catholic clergyman in Northern Ireland has said the church will investigate allegations of child sex abuse by priests dating back more than 60 years. It follows an emergency meeting at Maynooth when the church revealed it was establishing its own inquiry into how it dealt with such complaints. The church's 30 bishops in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland met on Monday to discuss their contribution to the Irish Government's inquiry into alleged abuse by priests, which is to be led by an Irish lawyer. On Wednesday, the Auxiliary Bishop of Down and Connor, Bishop Donal McKeown, said guidelines would now be reviewed. Bishop Donal McKeown: "Files going back 62 years will be investigated" He told the BBC: "What we are looking for now is not just to implement and to revise the guidelines, but to investigate all complaints over the past 62 years. "And to publish a report on how they were handled, and to hold up hands up over any information that will come out that things were covered up or that the truth was not out." The Archbishop of Armagh, Dr Sean Brady, has already said an independent audit will be held into the controversy surrounding the alleged abuse. The terms and reference of the audit are still being drawn up. Victims protest The bishops' meeting in Maynooth followed a demonstration by more than 150 people in Dublin at the weekend. The protesters called for the resignation of Dublin Archbishop Cardinal Desmond Connell, who was celebrating a Mass to mark the birth of the founder of the Christian Brothers religious order in Ireland. Many of the protesters said they had been abused by Christian Brothers. Bishop Brendan Comiskey admitted he had not protected children Cardinal Connell refused to comment as he went into the Christian Brothers' bicentenary celebration at the Royal Dublin Society headquarters on Sunday. But in his homily, he acknowledged many Christian Brothers had "betrayed a trust" and that "unthinkable harm" had been caused. The Christian Brothers have had a strong link with Irish education for more than 60 years and ran many schools in the Irish Republic and some in Northern Ireland. The latest controversy has followed allegations that a Catholic priest, Father Sean Fortune, who committed suicide three years ago, sexually abused children. On Saturday, the Pope accepted the resignation of Dr Brendan Comiskey, the Bishop of Ferns in County Wexford. Dr Comiskey resigned after criticism of how he handled the case of Father Fortune, following a BBC television documentary last month. Dr Comiskey admitted he had not done enough to protect children in his County Wexford diocese. The Ferns case has triggered fresh claims of clerical sex abuse incidents and a flood of anger in overwhelmingly Roman Catholic Ireland, where the Church's image has been severely damaged by a string of scandals in the last decade. Pressure on the Catholic Church has also increased elsewhere in recent months, with a number of abuse allegations in the United States culminating in legal action against some of the most senior figures in the Church's hierarchy.
