As investigations of alleged sexual abuse of multiple young boys by two Polish clerics continue, one Polish priest, Father Ireneusz Bochynski, of Piotrkow Trybunalski in Central Poland, claims he is aware of 10-year-old children who “went to bed with adults, wanting to be fulfilled, and it was the choice of the child.”

In a recent Polskie Radio report, Father Bochynski insisted that “now that we have so many broken marriages, where most often there is a lack of a father, it will happen more and more often that children without such figures will cling on to men.”

The report highlights that Bochynski’s statement is in line with those held by head of the Polish Episcopate Archbishop Jozef Michalik. He argues that children involved in pedophilia cases are often “searching for love” because of its absence in their broken homes.

Poland’s attorney general’s office is currently examining 650 documents pertaining to allegations of sexual abuse of multiple boys in the Dominican Republic by two Polish priests.

“A cursory look at them has confirmed that they will be of value in the case, as we had hoped,” said Maciej Kujawski, spokesman for the attorney general.

“All the documents are in Spanish, and we cannot refer to their contents until the translation has been carried out,” added Przemyslaw Nowak, another spokesman for the office.

Father Wojciech Gil, who has been reportedly staying with family in a village near Krakow is accused of sexually abusing at least seven boys while he was at a parish in a highland town called Juncalito. Another priest, Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, an ex-Vatican nuncio in the Dominican Republic, faces similar allegations but it is uncertain where his is right now according to the report.

Archbishop Wesolowski possessed diplomatic immunity as a Vatican ambassador and was replaced by the Vatican, which is currently carrying out its own investigation, in August.

Recalling the nuncio “is by no means an effort to avoid taking responsibility for what might possibly be verified,” a spokesman for the Vatican noted in early September.

The Dominican Republic’s attorney general Francisco Dominguez Brito, said in late October that “the guilty must bear responsibility.

“What has happened is inexcusable,” he added while emphasizing that he wants charges to be made “as quickly as possible.”

“A cursory look at them has confirmed that they will be of value in the case, as we had hoped,” said Maciej Kujawski, spokesman for the attorney general.

The 650 documents have been passed on to the district prosecutor’s office in Warsaw, but the office has declined to reveal whether any extradition request has been made.

“All the documents are in Spanish, and we cannot refer to their contents until the translation has been carried out,” said Przemyslaw Nowak, spokesman for the office.

At present, Poland has no extradition agreement with the Caribbean republic.

Father Wojciech Gil, who in recent months has been staying with family in a village near Krakow, stands accused of sexually abusing at least seven boys while he headed a parish in the highland town of Juncalito.

Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, former Vatican nuncio in the Dominican Republic, faces similar accusations, although his current whereabouts are unknown.

As a Vatican ambassador, Archbishop Wesolowski possessed diplomatic immunity, although he has already been replaced in his post, after being recalled by the Vatican in August.

The Vatican is carrying out its own investigation.

A spokesman for the Vatican said in early September that “the recall of the nuncio is by no means an effort to avoid taking responsibility for what might possibly be verified.”

Pope Francis had himself declared in April that the Roman Catholic Church must “act decisively” to punish paedophile priests, and that this is needed “for the church and its credibility.”

Francisco Dominguez Brito, the Dominican Republic’s attorney general, said in late October when the files were sent that “the guilty must bear responsibilty.

“What has happened is inexcusable,” he added, stressing that he wanted charges to be made “as quickly as possible.”

Broken homes

Meanwhile another Polish cleric has claimed that broken homes are a catalyst for paedophilia.

Father Ireneusz Bochynski, from the city of Piotrkow Trybunalski in Central Poland, has said he knows of 10-year-old children who “went to bed with adults, wanting to be fulfilled, and it was the choice of the child.”

Father Bochynski insisted that “now that we have so many broken marriages, where most often there is a lack of a father, it will happen more and more often that children without such figures will cling on to men.”

His controversial remarks echo those of head of the Polish Episcopate Archbishop Jozef Michalik, who claimed that children involved in paedophilia cases were often “searching for love” as they came from broken homes. (nh/pg)

    Unbelievable, is it not, that in this day and age a Roman Catholic priest anywhere in the world would stoop so low as to blame a 10-year-old for the sex abuse perpetrated by a priest?

    Another clarification and apology in the offing?

  2. B says:

    Yes, anyone who actually imagines that 10-year olds are capable of wanting sexual relations shows so little understanding of children that they should never be allowed anywhere near them, or be allowed to minister to them. What is wrong with these “leaders” that they can’t put the blame where it fully belongs, on the pervert priests?

  3. JG says:

    Doesn’t that sound like a page borrowed from the script of the defense in cases of women being raped?… It was the woman ‘s fault because of the way she dressed, looked at the defendant or the way she walked and so on.
    Since this is in Poland and apparently just starting to deal with the predators we will probably hear this type of excuse, then it will be an attempt to muddy the water because of the victims age, then they will blame the morals of the time, then the victims will only be after money…In other words all the excuses and cover-up we have been hearing about over the last several years will all be “recycled” for that new audience in Poland.
    Blaming a 10 year old!…how crass!

  4. B says:

    Yes, JG, it does smack of defences which blame the rape victim. And then it goes to even more ridiculous lengths, suggesting the child got into the priest’s bed and victimized the priest! It’s so infuriatingly wrong-headed.

  5. JG says:

    B,
    Well…poor children who have been abused previously and then were “paid” or given “gifts” by the priest or Monsignor! To have a full stomach and then maybe being encouraged by relatives who are in dire circumstances…That is the only place where I can see a child of that age “pretending”, not really understanding the abuse….For these perverts to invert the cause and effect to explain or
    rationalize….Puke..puke…puke!
    I remember on this site someone relating how he felt “guilty” for accepting gifts from the “priest” who had abused him because he(priest) was not making that much money!

    Is that possible to imagine, that they abused/abuse these kids and still want to make them feel guilty or “thankful” for the gifts “father” gave them.
    That’s the part this story does not go into, the corruption of these kids because of their “poverty”, single mothers being targeted for this very reason: because they are vulnerable in so many ways.
    If that is not a page scripted in “hell”…. certainly from a sewer under the Vatican!
