Vatican to Face its Pedophilia Crimes before

The United Nations

Geneva, Switzerland: The Raelian Movement and its attorneys have filed an “Urgent Request for Action” with Mr. Miguel Petit, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography to further investigate and stop the countless crimes of not only pedophilia by priests and bishops, but the procurement, trafficking, & abuse of children worldwide. The Raelian “Urgent Appeal” which was lodged at UN Headquarters Geneva on October 1 and is in transit to Mr. Petit in Uruguay was according to one UN official, the first complaint filed with the UN about the Vatican’s involvement in an international child sex scandal, “There has been a lot of talk about the Vatican, but you are the first to address the child abuse issue.” A copy of the Urgent Request for action filed with the UN can be viewed at:

The Vatican has violated international law by covering up their crimes through reassignment of pedophile priests to different regions and paying $ millions to silence victims, the Vatican is in direct violation of treaties they have sworn to uphold: 1) the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC) and 2) the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography -OPCRC.

Will the power of the Vatican to influence the world to ignore these crimes stop at the U.N.? Or will the U.N. be able to turn away from the thousands of documented facts, including signed treaties by the Vatican?

Furthermore, the Vatican holds an official observer status at the U.N., another “privilege” it enjoys since it does not possess any of the normal aspects required by every other government. The Vatican claims that its sovereignty is based upon the Roman Catholic Church's conception of itself as a sovereign entity on par with secular sovereign states. No other organization is allowed this status by just claiming sovereignty. The truth, however, is that its power comes directly from its cultural domination and annihilation of countless indigenous cultures…. which will also be brought to the U.N. soon.
