Ireland -Religious orders not committed to pay compensation -August 27, 2013

The religious orders that were called to pay compensation to survivors of the so-called Magdalene laundries (see our Newsletter of June 2013) have refused to contribute to the State’s redress scheme. The four religious orders which operated the laundries proclaimed full cooperation with all the recommendations contained in Mr Justice John Quirke’s report into a compensation scheme. However, all the orders have refused to contribute to the fund that could amount to €58 million.
