Catholic Nun Arrested For Helping Pedophile Priest In Sexual Assaults

A Roman Catholic nun in Argentina has been charged on suspicion of helping priests sexually abuse deaf children authorities have said.

The 42-year-old nun, Kosaka Kumiko, born in Japan was also charged with physically abusing the students at the Antonio Provolo Institute for children with hearing impairment in northwestern Mendoza province.

Kumiko resided 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 and are being held at a jail in Mendoza.

They and have not spoken publicly since the arrest. If found guilty, the accused face 10 to 50 years in prison.

Victims said that anal and vaginal rapes, fondling and oral sex were allegedly committed by the priests in the bathrooms, dormitories, garden and a basement at the school in Lujan de Cuyo, a city about 620 miles northwest of Buenos Aires.

A Vatican investigative commission recently visited Mendoza to learn more about the case against the priests but nothing has been done so far by it.

The Vatican has been in the line of fire for shielding sexual predator missionaries and not taking necessary actions to punish them.
