Pope issues law to force priests and nuns to report sexual abuse

Pope Francis has decreed that all Catholic priests and nuns must report sexual abuse and its cover-up to church authorities, including wrongs committed by bishops and cardinals.

His groundbreaking edict promises protection for whistleblowers and requires all dioceses to have a system in place to receive claims confidentially.

The new law, which applies retroactively, could unleash a fresh wave of abuse allegations and revelations in the global church.
