Submission to Prosecutor about Sexual Abuse in the Church

The Centre for Constitutional Rights has made public an application it submitted to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court on behalf of the  Network of those Abused by Priests, or SNAP. The application requests that the Prosecutor employ his authority under article 15 of the Rome Statute and begin an investigation into sexual abuse of children within the Catholic Church. The charge is that this amounted to a crime against humanity.
Dov Jacobs has quite a thoughtful and thorough discussion of the application on his blog.
