“He always had to walk this way, to wipe himself, and run his hand over his back or stomach. Once in the evening he came into the studio. Like some CD. The CD cabinet was behind the show host. I remember that stupid smile to this day. Just a lady.” An old man was on duty on the ground floor. I was running the program. My headphones were on. After turning off the microphone, at some point I felt a hand on my shoulder, it wasn’t just a touch, “- says the journalist.
“We had an anti-panic button on the console, and activating it required a security company. I told him without turning around: Get out of here or I’ll press it right away. He left. I was under 19,” the reporter continues.
Those who have known me for years, knew me in the 1990s, knew that at that time I said that after graduating from high school I would go to the theological school in Szczecin. I went to technical school. The school lasted 5 years. I was before high school. That’s one of the things that kept me off this path – the journalist reveals it on Twitter.
The MFF radio reporter does not hide his sorrow for the church leaders. “The death of Reverend Demer does not end the matter. There are still those who were deaf. Archbishop Dzig is alive, who, aware of the matter, promoted him, Senior Bishop Kruszowicz” – he explains.
The rest of the article is below the video.
Father André Demer died this morning after a long cancer. Our findings show that the cleric’s condition has been extremely difficult for a long time. Last week, Archbishop Andrzej Dziga sacked the father. Demer as President of the John Paul II Medical Institute in Szczecin. He did so after he met one of the victims of a cleric who allegedly molested underage boys in the 1990s.
Victims of Father Demer repeatedly reported mistakes made to them. However, it did not start until 2008, after a report by the local newspaper “Gazeta Yeborkza”, “The sin hidden in the church.” Church trial began and the Szczecin Prosecutor’s Office began an investigation. However, while the church court found Demer guilty, secular investigators believed the cleric, not his victims. After a few months, the investigation was halted.
A few years later, the case returned. This time directly to court due to a subsidiary indictment filed by one of the victims. The court of first instance discontinued the case, but – on appeal – ordered another panel of judges to review Demer’s accusations and the pedophilia. Here was another problem. It was 2015 and 20 years had passed since the crime. The case had to be dismissed due to the statute of limitations. Father Demer did not punish. Immediately appealed the church ruling, the cases were not settled (since 2008).
