kumiko-nun-child-abuseINDEPENDENT (UK) – A Roman Catholic nun has been charged on suspicion of helping priests sexually abuse deaf children, Argentinean authorities have said.

Kosaka Kumiko was also charged with physically abusing the students at the Antonio Provolo Institute for children with hearing impairment in northwestern Mendoza province.

The 42-year-old nun, who was born in Japan but has Argentine citizenship, denied any wrongdoing.

Kumiko lived at the school between 2004 and 2012, according to authorities. She had been on the run for about a month before she turned herself in this week.

A former student accused the nun of forcing her to wear a diaper to conceal bleeding after she was allegedly raped by priest Horacio Corbacho, prompting police to investigate.

Corbacho, fellow priest Nicola Corradi and three other men were arrested last year after they were charged with sexually abusing at least two dozen students at the school.

They are being held at a jail in Mendoza and have not spoken publicly since the arrest. If found guilty, the accused face 10 to 50 years in prison.

  1. Here we go again, straight down Rivas's river! Why don't he comment on things that are directly his job instead of trying to navigate uncertain political waters. People are more concerned with rape than DHS or NICE. The only outcome of rape is death and destruction, but DSH and re organizing NICE could very well be our way out of economic dependency. Whether we like it or not or choose to accept or reject is our own personal decision. So why have an opinion on something you are not certain of the outcome but no comment on something with a known outcome which directly affects the relationship between you, you flock and the whole nation? Whos is this man's advisor? He will now have to comment on everything in future or else he will appear tainted. It is only consistency that can vindicate your independence on issues. People who say that the church should be commenting on such issues are not questioning why they don't comment on others. This brings sharper into focus the questions: Is the church on a better moral footing than government? Does the church embraces its duties and understands its responsibilities better than the government?

  2. To you bosco:
    I don't know which Planet you're at, but this crap all started at the very same [Roman Catholic Church]
    All other Denominations have their blemish, but the Roman Church Priests stand out as chief among them.
    Why is that, I don't know but a little reading and research will knock the pants off you. They too are all sinners and have all come short of the glory of God..... check it out.....

  7. Child predators disguise themselves in all ways. The become priests, pastors, teachers, coaches, child care providers... in any shape or form to be around kids. As a devout catholic this sickens me. They should be locked up for the rest of their lives. Wolves in sheep clothings.
