Victims of sex abuse at the hands of the Catholic Church have been bouyed by a Victoria Police submission to the state's Parliamentary Inquiry. The subission is personally signed by Chief Commissioner Ken Lay and accuses the church of dissuading some victims from from reporting crimes to police, alerting suspects to allegations which may have led to a loss of evidence and protecting known or suspected offenders. SBS reporter Luke Waters recently interviewed Anthony Foster whose two daughters were raped by a Catholic Priest. He's been advocating for action against the church for some sixteen years and reacted positively to the contents of the police submission.
