'We got punished for speaking up' - Catholic school abuse survivor

From Morning Report, 8:53 am on 4 December 2018

A man molested at a Catholic college when he was 17 says he was threatened with expulsion when he alerted the school. The man gave evidence in 2015 that helped convict Marist Brother Patrick Bignell of indecent assault at St Bernard's College in Lower Hutt in the 1980s. The Marist Brothers say it's 'deeply regrettable' a young person raised a concern about harm and was not heard and did not receive support.
