The Minister for Justice said:
I read the report as Justice Minister. But on a human level – as a father and as a member of this community – I felt a growing sense of revulsion and anger. Revulsion at the horrible evil acts committed against children. Anger at how those children were then dealt with and how often abusers were left free to abuse. But the white heat of our anger should not for one moment deflect us from what needs to be done. The persons who committed these dreadful crimes – no matter when they happened – will continue to be pursued. They must come to know that there is no hiding place. That justice – even where it may have been delayed – will not be denied. And there is a clear duty on us all to ensure that everything possible is done to prevent such abuse happening in the future. And where it does happen that noone is above or beyond the law. But the era where evil people could do so under the cover of the cloth, facilitated and shielded from the consequences by their authorities, while the lives of children were ruined with such cruelty, is over for good.

Is there any other possible interpretation of this other than the Cardinal is to be arrested and charged ?
