Bolivian Jesuits: Our actions were ‘disastrous’ in dealing with sexual abuse

The Jesuits of Bolivia admitted that their actions were “negligent, indolent, and disastrous” in response to the sexual abuse of minors by priests such as the late Luis María Roma, who kept a diary and had photographs and videos of the Indigenous girls he abused. In another notorious case, “Padre Pica” also kept a diary in which he admitted abusing up to 85 boys and adolescents.
