Salvos deny endemic child sex abuse

The Salvation Army has admitted it has received close to 500 complaints from children who were sexually abused in its orphanages around Victoria.

The religious and charity organisation says it has paid out almost $20 million in compensation, but denies paedophilia was endemic.

The Victorian parliamentary child abuse inquiry heard the Salvos have not reported a single complaint to police and that the total number of child abuse cases is almost certainly much higher than its records show.

The inquiry was also told the Salvation Army has never conducted a review into the abuse that took place at its children's homes.

Salvation Army Captain Malcolm Roberts told the inquiry that the organisation had received 471 complaints against officers for abuse that took place up until the 1980s.

He said the complaints related to about 50 officers, 37 of whom have died.

Under intense questioning, Captain Roberts conceded the Salvation Army had never conducted a comprehensive review of abuse because the offences happened so long ago.

"Most of the people who could give us any guidance around what happened in those homes are dead," he said.

Captain Roberts said despite the large number of recent complaints, he rejected any suggestion that child sexual abuse was endemic at Salvation Army orphanages.
