Victim Says Eight Men Abused Him

Cornwall News AM 1220

November 28, 2006 — He says he was abused by eight men while growing up in the city. Claude Marleau testified today at the Cornwall Public Inquiry and claimed he was abused by five priests and three others during his pre-teen and teenage years. Two years ago, a Quebec court found Father Paul Lapierre guilty of abusing Marleau. Lapierre was acquitted on similar charges in a Cornwall court. Marleau says the police told him not talk to Perry Dunlop who is the former city cop credited with shining light on the abuse issue. Meanwhile, Commissioner Normand Glaude gave his reasons for dismissing a motion regarding a confidentiality issue brought forward by the diocese. Lawyers for the diocese are going to a higher court to seek a review of the decision. Until then, the AM 1220 News Centre can not air the name of the individual in question due to a publication ban.
