The Norwegian Catholic Church has been told of seven new cases of sexual offences against minors in the past week.

“We have very little concrete information for now. It’s either up to those who subjected to abuse or their family members who must decide whether to go to the police,” Rønnaug Aaberg Andresen, head of the Church’s professional advisory committee tells Adresseavisen.

None of the new cases involved Georg Müller, now disgraced former Bishop-prelate of Trondheim.

There are now a total of 18 reported incidents, including three against underage girls, two of them sisters.
