Police Investigate Fort Augustus Abbey Abuse

Police have confirmed they are investigating allegations of abuse by monks at a former Scottish Catholic boarding school.

It follows a BBC Scotland investigation which uncovered evidence of 30 years of physical and sexual abuse at Fort Augustus Abbey in the Highlands and its East Lothian prep school.

The Benedictine order which ran the schools has apologised to any victims.

Fresh claims of abuse have now emerged since the programme aired on Monday.

The documentary has also prompted calls for more support for victims.

In a statement Police Scotland, said it would make no further comment at this stage as it was now a “live investigation”.

It added that all such allegations are investigated and dealt with in a “victim-centred” manner.

    Will the police investigate possible connections to a local paedophile ring?

    David Matheson had more convictions for sexual crimes against children than ukpaedos-exposed has reported. He pled guilty each time and was given a suspended sentence as a ‘thank you’ for not putting the children through a court case!

    Will there ever be justice for these children?
