On Sunday, October 3, writes about this AFP.

The agency clarified that the commission has been investigating for more than two and a half years, studying the period from 1950 to the present day, based on church, judicial and police archives, as well as interviews with witnesses.

According to the head of the commission, Jean-Marc Sauv, the study revealed from 2.9 thousand to 3.2 thousand pedophiles among church members. He did not rule out that there could be much more of them.

The full commission report is due to be released on Tuesday 6 October and contains 2,500 pages.
