This is only the tip of this iceberg.
Be aware that the Catholic Church in Australia cannot be sued in these matters.
If you try to you hit a couple of brick walls.
The first is that the Diocese is always broke. All property is sidelined into companies and the Diocese own nothing. The priests own nothing so
there is nothing to get. The Holy See cannot be sued because he had Diplomatic status. The Church in Australia tied all of their assets up back in
the early Eighties in preparation for these cases.
A few years back the Anglican Church ended up 'generously' handing out a maximum of $50,000 per case (and not many received the maximum) while the
Arch Bishop whined that he had to sell his private tennis court to pay for it all. A wrecked life is worth about the same as a reasonable new car.
The Church would never release those documents. People in Australia that are in the know are aware of what these documents have in them. The biggest
shock is that Ratzinger was in control of this whole sordid mess (worldwide) and issued a decree NOT to assist temporal authorities and to litigate
like there is no tomorrow.
There is even a recent High Court (Highest court in Australia) decision that protects the Catholic Church from litigation.
