PostSubject: Vatican critic and abuse survivor refuses to step down from commission   Mon Feb 08, 2016 3:41 am

Earlier statement from commission said Peter Saunders would take a leave but he says only the pope can remove him



...
Saunders said that on Saturday morning the commission had taken a near-unanimous vote of no-confidence against him, accusing him of being hard to work with and a "campaigner", and of talking too much to the media.
Groups that track sexual abuse by the clergy rallied to his defense.
"The apparent attempt today by the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors to eject an outspoken survivor raises serious doubts about its integrity and independence," said Anne Barrett Doyle, co-founder of BishopAccountability.org in the United States.
"For me the commission is a disgrace, as a survivor," said Juan Carlos Cruz, a victim of clergy sexual abuse in Chile who attended the news conference with Saunders. "They think that rape and child abuse in general is something that is behind us already but this is not."
Saunders said he had "made it clear that I would not be a member of a public relations exercise. The protection of our children is much more important than that."
Another commission member, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said it was "deeply committed to the protection of children", but that its brief was to advise and not investigate or judge.
