VATICAN - The Holy See is not the Catholic Church and is not responsible for every act committed by Catholics [AN]

Mgr Tomasi spoke at the 52nd Session of the Committee charged with implementing the Convention against Torture. The Holy See has advocated and will continue to advocate, “on a global level the values and all human rights” that safeguard human dignity. It also considers the Convention a “valid” instrument. It does however believe it should be extended to other situations, like paedophilia.
