RNW production nominated for prize
A series of reports produced by Radio Netherlands Worldwide and the Dutch newspaper on sexual abuse in the Roman Catholic Church has been nominated for the ‘De Loep' The Lens investigative journalism prize. The award is given annually by the Dutch-Flemish Investigative Journalism Association VVOJ.
RNW’s Robert Chesal and ’s Joep Dohmen worked closely together to unearth much new information about sexual abuse in the Catholic Church in the Netherlands. The two journalists were able to track down victims and others involved in what went on, who were often able to tell intensely personal and gripping stories about abuse in Dutch boarding schools run by Catholic institutions.
