Reports of physical and sexual abuse in the choir, the Regensburger Domspatzen in Bavaria, first emerged in 2010 as part of a nationwide wave of revelations linking officials of the Roman Catholic Church in Germany to the mistreatment of children. But an internal report by the church identified only 72 cases of abuse in the Regensburg Diocese, most involving severe corporal punishment.

The Ratzingers don't know anything - except maybe where the bodies are buried/hidden. In an OpEdNews article - The Vatican's Fake Occupy Implodes: Documents Evoke A History Of Money Laundering, Sexual Terrorism, And Even ... Murder (5/27/12) Vatican documents exposed a host of crimes linked to the Vatican: all of which it is believed Benedict XVI knew about. These also included pedophile priest sexual abuse.

Last week, Ulrich Weber, a lawyer commissioned by the choir to look into accusations of beatings, torture and sexual abuse, presented his initial findings, based on more than 140 interviews, roughly half of them with victims, and an examination of archives. Mr. Weber estimated that from 1953 to 1992, every third student at a school attached to the choir suffered some kind of physical abuse. He said the mistreatment at institutions linked to the Domspatzen included at least 40 cases of sexual violence.

If true, the findings again raise the question of whether Benedict, the pope emeritus, who taught theology in Regensburg from 1969 to 1976, had any knowledge of the abuse taking place in the choir that his brother directed.

Did The Ratzingers Actually Participate?

There is no evidence to date that either Georg or Benedict participated in the "rituals" heaped upon the boys choir, but the association of the two at the same time with the boys choir raises serious concerns considering the extent of the abuse:

The abuse ranges from sexual assault and rape to food deprivation to the boys who were less cooperative."
