The court heard Robinson continued to be paid up to 800 pounds a month by the Archdiocese of Birmingham until December 2001, despite officials being aware of the allegations. Robinson told the court he had been unable to afford to return to Britain, but the jury later heard that in February 2000 the archdiocese sent him a cheque worth 8,400 pounds. Read more:

On the 23rd of October 2010 I saw the headline “Church attacked after paedophile priest jailed for sexual abuse” and today I read the article which again exposes the Catholic Church as an organisation which systematically supports and finances criminals and which continues to be protected by states and their prosecution institutions and is therefore furthermore enabled to commit crimes against the people of these states.

I am now quoting from this article:

 

Church attacked after paedophile priest jailed for sexual abuse

The Catholic Church was criticised in court as a paedophile former priest was jailed for a campaign of sexually abuse against young boys that spanned four decades.

James Robinson, 73, who fled to the US in 1985, was found guilty of 21 sexual offences at Birmingham Crown Court yesterday after being extradited from America.

The jury heard he carried out a string of abuses against six victims, including two altar boys, between 1959 and 1983.

Robinson, who worked in the Black Country, Staffordshire, Birmingham and Coventry after being ordained as a priest in 1971, denied all the charges but was jailed for 21 years.

The court heard Robinson continued to be paid up to 800 pounds a month by the Archdiocese of Birmingham until December 2001, despite officials being aware of the allegations.

Robinson told the court he had been unable to afford to return to Britain, but the jury later heard that in February 2000 the archdiocese sent him a cheque worth 8,400 pounds.

Judge Thomas said: "The role of the Catholic Church [in the case] is questionable, but it's not for me to judge.

"Others may take the view that a full investigation and full disclosure of the results of that investigation is due to the members of that church and [the victims]."
