Amid the sexual abuse crisis the National Review Board (NRB) of the US Bishops Conference calls for a “lay-led investigation” of bishops, and the implementation of a whistle blowing policy.

“The recent publication of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report in the US, and the revelation of the allegations against former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, has prompted the National Review Board (NRB) to publicly request a lay board to investigate bishops, and that a "whistle blowing" policy be implemented. Established in 2002 by the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), the NRB advises the bishops on the prevention of the sexual abuse of minors.  The USCCB published the statement on their website on Tuesday.”
