Teacher under investigation for historic sex abuse against pupils

Published

A teacher is under investigation for historic sex abuse, which took place in the 90´s, and which the Barcelona’s Court has been investigating the case since last November, when the first complaint was received against this teacher, who is a lay person and is now retired.

The case revolves around a dozen complaints against a teacher at the Pare Manyanet school in Barcelona for sexually abusing students there when they were between 9 and 11 years old, throughout the 1990s.

Following the first complaint, other victims took the step of reporting this teacher from the Pare Manyanet school, located in the district of Les Corts and belonging to the congregation of the Sons of the Holy Family.

The first victim told a TV news show that she needed years of therapy to be able to talk about the case and explain it to her parents, something she did when she was in her thirties.

She said that the teacher, who taught maths and drawing, touched girls between the ages of 9 and 11, even in the middle of classes, a behaviour that lasted a decade and that, in some way, “everyone knew what that man was doing” although no one did anything to stop it.

A spokesperson for the school said that the school has “supported the victims, respecting the presumption of innocence, with maximum transparency,” and that they can contact the school “so that we can be of service to them.”
