In June 2019, the Catholic Church in Birmingham, U.K. was embroiled in
scandal after the sex abuse inquiry found that the Archdiocese of Birmingham
had protected priests accused of abuse by "repeatedly" failing to alert police
to allegations. The inquiry examined 134 allegations of child sexual abuse
made against 78 individuals - many of whom are no longer - since the mid 1930s.
Thirteen individuals were convicted.
