Although not said the number of victims that exist in the country, Cabrera Lopez said that these days has been dedicated to speak with them. He also noted the need in each Diocese of Mexico bishops work to denounce criminal charges against the problem, and that there is a system of information of cases of abuse by priests.” One of the things we have as task is precisely to raise statistics, in Mexico there is a center of information gathering, because each Bishop is facing these problems,”he said.” We hope that after the measures that the Church has placed greater demand or zero tolerance, decrease cases of crimes and that also the bishops put the batteries to put in order these situations and how the law, sends him when we receive “a story of this kind, must immediately inform the public prosecutor’s Office”. On the sexual abuse of nuns by priests, exhibited internationally this week and that father Francisco recognized there, the Archbishop of Monterrey said she had no knowledge of this problem in Mexico or in Monterrey.
“I have no news here in Mexico, in Monterrey have not received any complaint from any religious”, Cabrera Lopez said.
“But I believe that we ended up a matter or at least try to scrutinize how is, first, the issue of minors, and certainly if any religious in Mexico, here in Monterrey, has been molested by a clergyman, it has a duty to inform us.”
