Australian PM Scott Morrison issues national apology to victims of child sex abuse

AFP
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has issued a national apology to victims of child sex abuse in an address to Parliament, acknowledging that the state failed to stop, what he termed, evil dark crimes committed over decades. 

Mr Morrison told Parliament in a nationally televised address that acts like these are done by Australians to Australians, enemies in the midst. He said, the nation has failed those who faced sex abuse.

The state apology comes after a five-year Royal Commission that detailed more than 15,000 survivors' harrowing child sex abuse claims involving thousands of institutions.

A series of institutions have already apologised for their failings, including Australian Catholic leaders who have lamented the church's history of child abuse and cover-ups.
