A short while ago I spoke with Barry McLaren, the Chief Federal Prosecutor in Nunavut. Here are the current numbers of Father Eric Dejaeger omi charges and complainants.
There are 20 charges. There are 11 “alleged” victims/complainants .
Here is the breakdown:
Prior to his return to Nunavut Dejaeger faced 6 charges from 4 male complainants.
After his return to Nunavut Daejaeger was charged with one non-sex-abuse-related charge: failure to appear. That related to his failure to appear in 1995.
Since his return to Nunavut Dejaeger has been charged with 13 additional ‘new’ sex-abuse related offences. The latter relate to allegations from 7 ‘new’ complainants: 3 female and 4 male.
To break these ‘new charges down further, on 09 February 2011 the total charges were: 9 sex related charges and one failure to appear. The known complainants at that time were 5 male and 1 female.
Since 09 February there have been 11 new charges laid against Dejeager from five new complainants (2 male and 3 female.) These have not been reported by the media.
The total therefore at this date is:
20 charges (19 sex-related and one failure to appear)
11 “alleged” victims/complainants (7 male and 4 female)
I am puzzled. I just don’t understand why the media hasn’t picked these up?
Anyway, the numbers are confirmed.
Finally, good for all of you who mustered the courage to go to police. Good for you! I encourage all who are afraid to be strong. There is nothing to be afraid of. Go to the RCMP and tell them your ‘story.’ There is nothing to be afraid of. If you have received money from “the Church” you are still free to go to the police. “The Church” can not take the money back if you go to police. No one can stop you from going to the police.
My prayers are with you all.
Enough for now,
