Bad Brother John Kostka Chute may not be the only one to face up to court in Canberra this year…… Following on from stories relating to Marist College Canberra, and the abuse (both sexual, physically and mental) felt by many boys at the hands of many Marist Brothers and some of their lay teachers….we bring you following update (no doubt one of many): Comment by BerraBoy68 — 12 February, 2008 @ 9:58 pm Kostka goes to court on 21 Feb – open to the Public. I’d love to organise a large group of Old Boys to be at the court for Kostka’s arrival. Any body up for a public show of support for those effected?
BTW: expect another lay teacher from Marist Canberra to be charged very soon. This is from a very reliable source!In the last 40 years, I wonder if we will ever know even a small fraction of the numbers of boys that were:
a) Sexually Abused;
b) Physcially Abused;
c) Mentally Abused;
d) All of the above
More to the point, I wonder if we will ever see a list of those people in authority within Marist that abuse was reported to (time and time again) and yet they sat by and did nothing.
