Fr Hans Zollner is an expert in the sexual abuse crises in the Catholic Church.

A physiologist by training and professor at the Gregorian University in Rome, he has been studying the phenomenon of sexual abuse within the Catholic Church for more than 30 years.

He is also a member of the Pontifical Mission for the Protection of Minors, a Vatican department which is charged with overseeing the implementation of child protection measures in the Church worldwide.

In this frank interview, Fr Zollner talks to EWTN’s Colm Flynn about some of the findings from his research into the abuse crises in the Church.
