      Police Investigations In The Spotlight 11/29/06 "The majority of testimony
      at the Cornwall Public Inquiry is centering on police investigations today. A
      victim is testifying about his involvement with police. Claude Marleau says he
      often had to initiate the calls and had to ask for information. He said the
      sooner the criminal part was over he could get on with his life. He says the
      officers did the best they could with the resources they had but wondered why
      their "higher ups" didn't tell them to investigate the diocese. Marleau says
      he suffered abuse at the hands of eight men including five priests while
      growing up in Cornwall. One priest was convicted in a Quebec court two years
      ago. _http://www.am1220.ca/news/local/_ (http://www.am1220.ca/news/local/)

      Victim Says Eight Men Abused Him 11/28/06 "He says he was abused by eight
      men while growing up in the city. Claude Marleau testified today at the
      Cornwall Public Inquiry and claimed he was abused by five priests and three others
      during his pre-teen and teenage years. Two years ago, a Quebec court found
      Father Paul Lapierre guilty of abusing Marleau. Lapierre was acquitted on
      similar charges in a Cornwall court. Marleau says the police told him not talk to
      Perry Dunlop who is the former city cop credited with shining light on the
      abuse issue. Meanwhile, Commissioner Normand Glaude gave his reasons for
      dismissing a motion regarding a confidentiality issue brought forward by the
      diocese. Lawyers for the diocese are going to a higher court to seek a review of
      the decision." _http://www.am1220.ca/news/local/_

      UN troops face child abuse claims 11/30/06 "Children have been subjected to
      rape and prostitution by United Nations peacekeepers in Haiti and Liberia, a
      BBC investigation has found. Girls have told of regular encounters with
      soldiers where sex is demanded in return for food or money. A senior official with
      the organisation has accepted the claims are credible. The UN has faced
      several scandals involving its troops in recent years, including a DR Congo
      paedophile ring and prostitute trafficking in Kosovo."
