Catholic clerics should face criminal charges if they do not report sexual abuse disclosed to them during confession, an Australian inquiry has recommended.
It is among 85 new proposals following a four-year landmark inquiry into institutional abuse in the nation.
The inquiry had heard harrowing tales of abuse, which were never passed onto the relevant authorities.
The recommendations will now be put to legislators.
The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, which began in 2013, heard accounts from thousands of victims.
