UN 'bowed to anti-Vatican NGOs' claims Vatican (see previous).

(ANSA) - Vatican City, February 7 - The United Nations Committee for the Rights of the Child allegedly bowed to prejudicial arguments from anti-Vatican NGOs in drafting a scathing report on clerical sex abuse published this week, Spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said Friday. "The insistence on particular cases" showed attention was given to "well-known NGOs contrary to the Catholic Church itself, and not to positions of the Church and the Holy See", he said.
