Stolen Lives, Marked Souls - Report into SJOG Brothers (Marylands)
He kupu whakapāhā nā ngā Kaiārahi o te Hāhi ki te hunga i pā kinotia me ngā mōrehu
Latest updates to Te Rōpū Tautoko's Roadmap of Actions
Te Rōpū Tautoko , he whakariterite, he whakahaere anō i ngā huihuinga a te Kōmihana a te Karauna mō ngā Tūkino ki te Hunga i Raro i te Whakamarumaru o ngā Whare Tiaki i te taha o ngā Pīhopa Katorika me ngā Kaihautū o te Whakaminenga, hei kanohi mō te Hāhi Katorika o Aotearoa.
E tū motuhake ana Te Rōpū Tautoko mai i te Kōmihana Karauna. Ko tāna, he whakahaere i te urupare a te Hāhi Katorika ki te Kōmihana Karauna, otirā, me hāngai tonu te whakapātanga atu o ngā mōrehu ki te pae tukutuku a te Kōmihana Karauna ki te kimi tautoko.
“E kuhu atu ana mātou ki te tukanga o te Uiuinga i runga i te whakaaro nui ki te hunga i pā kinotia i raro i ō mātou parirau. Ka whakapuaki mātou i ō mātou akoranga mō ngā mahi tūkino, i hua mai i tō mātou ake mate tonu. E whakahuatia ana ēnei kōrero i runga i te ngākau pāpaku me te pōuri nui. Ko tā mātou noa, he tāpae atu i ō mātou mōhiotanga, he whai i te karanga a Hēhu Karaiti ki te tika, ki te atawhai me te murunga o ngā hara.
E mōhio ana mātou ko te whakamātautautanga, ko te whakamāramatanga, ko te whakapuakitanga me te whakatutukinga o tēnei take te huarahi ki te whakapūmautanga o ngā akoranga, i tēnei rā, ā i ngā rā ki tua. Me mahi ngātahi, tātou katoa, e whakamahutia ai ngā mamae.”
Nā ngā Pīhopa me ngā Kaihautū o te Whakaminenga o te Hāhi Katorika o Aotearoa
“E whakapuaki ana ana au i te mamae nui i pā ki te huhua o ngā tamariki nā te taitōkai, nā te mahi tūkino a ngā kaiārahi me te tūkinotanga ā-hinengaro nā te maha o ngā kaiwhakarite o te Hāhi, o te hunga tapu hoki. He hōhonu kē ngā pānga kino o ēnei hara – tuatahi, ko te mamae me te wairua korou-kore o te hunga i tūkinotia, waihoki, ko ō rātou whānau, me te hapori whānui tonu o ngā kaiwhai me te hunga ki waho atu o te Hāhi.
Me wawe tonu tā mātou whakaae anō ki te whakaū i te whakamarumarutanga o ngā tamariki me te hunga whakaraerae.”
Pāpā Francis, Hereturikōkā, 2018
Te Whakapae Tūkino me ngā Māharahara
He take tino nui ngā whakapae tūkino ki te Hāhi. I Aotearoa, ka tukuna atu ngā whakapae taitōkai e pā ana ki ngā kaimahi o te hāhi ki te Church’s National Office for Professional Standards (NOPS).
Ka kōrerohia whānuitia ēnei take ki te ao tūmatanui, ka whakakahangia te tangata ki te whakapuaki i āna kōrero. E whakahau ana mātou i te hunga kua pā kinotia e tētahi pirihi, e tētahi tangata nō te whakapono rānei, ki te whakapā atu ki a NOPS, kia rangona tō kōrero, kia āta tirohia tō take. Otirā, ki te hiahia kē koe ki te haere hāngai ki te Tari Pirihimana, ā, ki te hiahia āwhina hoki koe, ka tautokona ēnei tāngata, ahakoa ko wai, e te Hāhi.

Confidentiality Waiver for survivors
Recognising the importance of survivors having absolute clarity regarding being able to tell their story fully to the Royal Commission, Te Rōpū Tautoko recommended to the Bishops and Congregational Leaders that they establish a process, similar to the Crowns, to enable all survivors to participate fully in the Commission.
The full text of the Waiver is available by downloading the following document.

Ngā Tūhuratanga o te Wā
The Royal Commission has announced a number of thematic investigations, looking at broad themes which carry across multiple settings.
Koianei ngā kaupapa o ngā tūhuratanga:
- Faith-based Institutions Response
- State Institutional Response
- Disability and mental health
- Foster Care
- Māori experiences
- Pacific peoples experiences
- State and faith-based redress
- Children's State residential care
- State psychiatric care
- Protestant and Other Faiths
- Catholic Church
- Contextual hearing
- Youth Justice care
The expectation is the Royal Commission will release two more reports; a case study report into the St John God Order and it’s works and a final Inquiry Report in March 2024.
The Royal Commission of Inquiry has reported that the Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses (Australasia) Limited has filed an application for a judicial review of matters relating to the Royal Commission of Inquiry on Abuse in Care.
Te Rōpū Tautoko states that the bishops and congregational leaders of the Catholic Church in New Zealand are not party to the judicial review proceedings described by the inquiry today and are not aware of the details.
The bishops and congregational leaders of the Catholic Church in New Zealand asked in 2018 for the terms of reference of the inquiry to be broadened to include faith-based as well as state institutions. They have engaged with and participated with the Royal Commission since its establishment and continue to do so.
