Office of the Director of Public Prosections
14 - 16 Merrion Street,
In the last week the Director of Public Prosecutions has dropped four charges of child abuse against a priest in Cloyne Diocese and also has declined to press charges against John Magee, the former Bishop of Cloyne for his role in not acting correctly and ethically when complaints of child abuse by priests in his diocese were brought to his attention.
Mr Magee has admitted these offences but, due to the failure of the DPP to prosecute he will now get away with them. The argument that the “feasibility of proof beyond reasonable doubt” is ringing rather hollow in the light of this admission.
In not acting to prevent further foreseeable abuse Mr Magee acted irresponsibly and cold heartedly towards these innocent children and I/we are requesting that the Director of Public Prosecutions look at this case again and seriously reconsider the decision not to prosecute Mr Magee.
At present, the victims of these abuses have had little or no justice and in allowing Mr Magee to get away with his crimes the State is sending out a message to all paedophile Roman Catholic clergy in the Republic of Ireland that they are safe from any legal consequences of their actions.
I/we are putting trust in the DPP to do the right thing in this instance.
