Chilling confession before the judges of Bernard Preynat, the former parish priest who ended up in prison in France for pedophile acts perpetrated on young scouts between 1971 and 1991. Before the judges, the ex prelate said that for 20 years “everyone happened” on weekends, during camps (scouts, ed
), there could be four or five children in a week. ”
The ex-priest then reiterated that in those days he did not realize the gravity of what he was doing. “For me, at the time, it wasn’t about sexual assaults, but about caresses, cuddles. I was wrong – he said – What made me understand was the accusations of the victims “.
