Of those, 198 were reports of children under 15 being abused. Most of the victims were boys.

The figures come from a report on paedophilia in the Church based on statistics from all dioceses and religious orders in Poland.

They were made public at the close of a meeting of the Polish Episcopal Conference, the central authority of the Catholic Church in Poland.
