In response to recent allegations and documents circulated on line and in the media, CLRG is currently carrying out a comprehensive internal investigation.
At the time of our initial statement last week, and as of today, CLRG in Dublin has not officially been served with any lawsuit documents or notified by authorities of formal criminal complaints. We are aware of the situation and are acting as swiftly as possible to respond appropriately in line with our child protection policy and local laws.
These allegations, if proven true, are of extremely grave concern and we will not hesitate to take appropriate action immediately. We have consulted our legal team for advice in this regard. We are a volunteer organisation and our members have been working around the clock to deal with this situation. We want the public to know that the protection of vulnerable people in our community is the utmost priority.
Within our membership, many of us are parents and teachers ourselves. The situations described in these documents are shocking and heartbreaking. We would like to express sympathy and support for victims of any crime. We will be communicating further once our internal investigation is complete.
