2.1.5.2 Right to Report Allegations of Misconduct-Abuse-Neglect or Harassment

1.    Anyone who alleges having been abused or victimized by the sexual misconduct of someone acting on behalf of the Catholic Church has the right to report it to both Church and civil authorities.

2.    Church personnel must advise such a person about this right and support its exercise. They are forbidden from obstructing its exercise by that person, or even by another who makes such a report either voluntarily or because the law mandates it.
