Church used different account to try and hide payout.



It’s been revealed the Catholic Church’s compensation to Georg Müller’s victim was paid out via the Diocese in Oslo instead of Trondheim so it wouldn’t be detected.

The former altar boy was given 250,000 kroner in damages after he came forward with details of his sexual abuse by Müller 20 years ago.

Bishop Bernt Eidsvig says compensation is normally paid by the victim’s Diocese, but confirms the man was paid from a church account in Oslo instead.

“The money is from Trondheim Diocese, but was paid via Oslo so nobody could guess the victim’s name or identity,” he tells Adresseavisen.
