The Royal Commission will be looking into St John of God in the inquiry into institutional ‘care’ of children,_Christchurch

Brother Bernard Kevin McGrath received 21 guilty verdicts and pleaded guilty to one charge of sexually abusing boys.[4] In 2009 TV One screened an episode of Real Crime: Beyond the Darklands in which clinical psychologist Nigel Latta talked to McGrath’s victims and evaluated his motivations and likelihood to re-offend.[citation needed] In November 2012, 252 new charges were laid in New South Wales against McGrath alleging that he repeatedly raped, molested and abused dozens of young boys at church-run institutions in the Newcastle-Maitland diocese over several decades. McGrath, then aged 65 years, flew back to Christchurch from Sri Lanka on 29 November 2012 and was arrested on Friday 30 November to face proceedings to extradite him to Australia on the new charges.[5] In late 2014 he was extradited to Australia and appeared in court on the charges contained in an 8000-page brief.[6][7]
