Statistics were released on 14 April 2019, commissioned by the Episcopal Conference
of Poland and with data from over 10,000 local parishes. It was found that from
1990 to mid-2018, abuse reports about 382 priests were made to the Church, with 625
children, mostly under 16, sexually abused by members of the Catholic clergy. There
were opinions that the figures underestimated the extent of the problem, and failed
to answer questions church officials had avoided for years.[101] Marek Lisinski, the
co-founder of Don't Be Afraid, which represents victims of clerical abuse, said "Tell
us how [the priests] hurt those children and how many times they were transferred to
different parishes before you paid notice". The data were released a few weeks after
Pope Francis had called for "an all-out battle against the abuse of minors". After
pressure from the Pope, in the preceding years Poland's church had publicly apologized
to abuse victims, and accepted the need to report those accused of such crimes. In earlier
times clergy to whom sexual abuse of minors was reported were not required by their
superiors to notify the police, but to investigate themselves, and if necessary inform
the Holy See.
