Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in the Newcastle Anglican diocese- 23/11/2016
Peter O’Brien questions former Newcastle dean Graeme Lawrence during the Royal Commission.
O’Brien puts it to Lawrence that others have said he was a paedophile.
“I totally reject that,” Lawrence says.
He denies being questioned in 1997 about allegations against him and has denied the evidence of others that he was the person at the end of a child sexual abuse hotline run by the Anglican Diocese of Newcastle.
“I was not handling a hotline,” Lawrence said.
O’Brien: “You were the fox in charge of the hen house.”
“You were protecting priests from allegations of child sexual abuse.”
“I did not.”
Asked whether he had “any inclination” to either a priest or a complainant” in any matter, Lawrence said: “I don’t recall any approaches.”
