Gearing, AmandaHerald Sun [Melbourne, Vic] 02 May 2003: 002.

CD’s mother asked Archbishop [Peter Hollingworth] in a letter to pay for counselling for her daughter after she was abused by Toowoomba Preparatory School pedophile Kevin Guy, but her request was refused because the church did not want to risk voiding its insurance policy by being seen to be admitting any guilt. 

“I followed these instructions throughout 1991 to the point where the diocesan solicitors notified CD’s mother on 17/9/91 that the diocese would not pay CD’s counselling fees,” Dr [Peter Coman] said.
