Paedophiles allowed to teach in Australian school for a decade
Paedophile Francis Cable, also known as Brother Romuald, was last year jailed for 16 years for raping and abusing 19 boys at three schools in Australia.
Catholic officials in Australia knowingly allowed two suspected paedophiles to continue teaching unpunished, eventually putting students at Canberra school St Edmund’s College at risk for a decade.
Brother Francis “Romuald” Cable hunted boys with an unnerving depravity and audacity before he moved to the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), molesting or raping at least 19 students at three Marist schools in the 1960s and 1970s.
Labelled one of NSW’s worst Catholic school paedophiles, he twisted religious doctrine and used his authority to manipulate victims, many of whom were troubled or from broken families.
