The film features first-hand accounts of victims who suffered sexual abuse at the hands of the Church, prompting widespread anger and leading to the establishment of a parliamentary inquiry commission.

Public Outrage and Inquiry Commission

The testimonies in the documentary have sparked significant public outcry. The raw and harrowing accounts of abuse have left viewers aghast and seeking justice for the victims. The response has been so strong that it has led to the formation of a parliamentary inquiry commission to probe into the allegations.

Adding fuel to the fire, revelations surfaced last week that a considerable network of child trafficking was run by Catholic institutions from the end of World War II until the 1980s. In a shocking expose, it was revealed that children were forcibly taken from their mothers and sold.

This has added another layer of horror to the unfolding scandal, prompting the Church to call for an independent investigation into these forced adoptions.

Church Requests Independent Investigation

In response to the mounting allegations, the Church has requested an independent investigation into the forced adoptions. Although it is yet to be seen how this investigation will proceed and what it will uncover, it represents a step towards addressing the historical wrongs committed by the Church.

The impact of the 'Godvergeten' documentary and the subsequent revelations have underscored the extent of abuse within the Church. As the parliamentary inquiry commission begins its work and the independent investigation gets underway, the world waits to see what further atrocities will be brought to light.
