Governor Wolf Statement on Grand Jury Recommendations for Victims

first_img August 31, 2018 Public Safety,  Statement Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today released the following statement reaffirming his support for the Grand Jury’s recommendations and calling on the General Assembly to take action:“The horrifying abuse endured by an unimaginable number of victims demands swift and substantial action. Let’s be clear: Many victims were coerced and suppressed from coming forward by an institution they felt obligated to respect.“The reforms laid out in the Grand Jury report would deliver what victims deserve. In my view, a limited victims fund outside the judicial system would not.“The Church, as a moral authority with a long and important record of social justice, should agree. We cannot shortchange these victims and we must set an example for the country – and the world – that Pennsylvania stands with victims.“I implore the House and Senate to send the reforms laid out in the Grand Jury report to my desk without any hesitation.” Governor Wolf Statement on Grand Jury Recommendations for Victimscenter_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
