I said earlier about cabinet ministers, Ruth Maria Kelly (born 9 May 1968) is a former British Labour Party politician, serving as Member of Parliament (MP) for Bolton West from 1997 until she stood down in 2010. she was a member of Opus Dei, i think that is why she resigned, and how come we never hear about The Knights of St Columba, or the Ancient Order of Hibernians, or the Jesuits, in the Media do they not exist
There is a Jesuit factory in the centre of Glasgow.

I would need to think that they would have needed to have had the insurance in place at the time of the crimes.
Perhaps, perhaps not, but what the Vatican did do was grant fiscal autonomy to each diocese in the U.S. after the fact. That way, they didn’t become the bottomless pit of compensation, even although they can easily afford it.

It’s not something I’d think you could get insured for but it’s maybe all in liability insurance under being sued by the public?
There is absolutely no way an insurance company would pay out on this. Too many people within Celtic allowed it to continue. It's like insuring your dog but not telling them about a pre-existing condition then trying to claim on it.

The payouts are going to reach tens of millions. I hope the victims get something out of this as it will recompense them for the years of horror they have had to put up with and the years of horror yet to face.

Spotlight shining brighter by the day. Only a matter of time now till the victims get their justice and some closure and that rancid organisation gets shut down hopefully.

Anyone reckon that the US lawsuit angle is being used as leverage to pile the pressure on the Piggery ? A UK class action lawsuit v an American alternative. ? Which will be the most expensive for the Peasants to pay in compensation ?

Surely it will be the CIA dealing with this in Scotland??
FBI can't operate on foreign soil and the CIA can't operate on American soil I think that's the way it works.
If the CIA are after U well UR in big big trouble.
Can't believe people still think they are going to walk away from this, were way way past that stage now.
Public enquiry is now a must!!

who sanctioned giving this b#stard his job back
I think there's more to the story of how he got his job in the first place too. Yet another overlooked scandal if it's true. We're supposed to believe a 20 year old Torbett went to Celtic with his boys club pitch asking for permission to use the Celtic brand. This sounds highly unlikely to me. I think Torbett was known to Celtic's hierarchy, and known for what he was. He was chosen by people within Celtic to start up Celtic Boys Club is what I suspect. The judge said when sentencing Torbett, "what this case has shown is that you used the club as a front and a recruiting ground for boys who you could sexually abuse ". That was the plan for Celtic Boys Club from the start alright, but could Torbett as a 20 year old really dupe Celtic's board into letting him use Celtic's brand? No chance in my view.
Another potential scandal that will never be looked into is did Celtic provide a reference for Torbett when he got the Managing Director's job with Fairbridge In Scotland. Imagine giving a known paedophile a reference so he could take a job as MD of a charity to help vulnerable young people. But, as we all know, such scandals will never see light of day because Celtic's "good name" must be protected.

It's becoming very clear there was institutional abuse at Celtic which went to the very top.

1. I still think they'll walk away from this relatively unscathed.

2. I don't think the victims will get a Public enquiry.

3. I don't think there will be any legal action taken against them from the USA.

Hope I'm wrong on all counts.

There is no chance they are getting out of this now, The McCafferty Trial or as I like to call it " The Big Trial ' will seal their fate as he was 1st team kit man.
Remember all of these bheasts were allowed freedom of Celtic Park and Barrowfield Training Ground to commit their crimes and I don't know who is advising them what to say but they have backed themselves into a very,very tight corner which is getting rather overcrowded day by day

Spot on mate.
Nowhere to hide now, first team kit mans going to jail for sure.
Don't think there can be a public inquiry untill the Civil cases have been resolved but I'm not 100% on that.
The next case blows everything out of the water, as U say it's getting worse by the day and yes who the fuk told them to change the name of the CBC and their strips also??
Pure madness that makes them look guilty as Sin.

Honestly, so many "rainbows" on that affair by now that I actually wait till it happens in reality before commenting.

The victims should come first here ... but my Rse, any punishment they get will go down well with this Bear.
 
Feel so sorry for the victims. Thankfully someone is gonna fight their corner. Hope every one of these evil bheasts who carried out these atrocities and every one of the evil b@stards who knew about it are named and caged. If the tarriers have to pay up even better but, lets get it in the open. Scotland's shame!!

God I hope you boys are right and justice prevails but I'm at the point where they've gotten away with so much for years I find it hard to believe this will be different.

When is the McCafferty trial?
This is the question I have too. If it's so pivotal to everything else, when does it happen?

The CIA? Really?

It would be a civil matter, unless they were to indict on criminal charges. Which would mean the defendant being extraditated to the US to face trial under whichever jurisdiction the crime happened.

I don't know mate but the second he goes down it's a different ball game. It's damming when he goes down.
This will take time as nobody knows how many are taking Civil action.
They will all get there day in court and I hope they feel some sort of justice at the end of it All!

I think people are starting to get carried away. It feels reminiscent of times during our worst period when there were continual rumours of "headshots", newspaper exposes and criminal cases.

Let's hope there is justice for the victims. I doubt, however, it will severely impact Celtic as an organisation.

I get this feeling as well. They should be shut down completely for knowingly enabling this for decades to protect the good name of the club.

The recent convictions haven’t laid a glove on them from the SFA, their sponsors or the police.

They will escape justice on this trajectory.

They don't have to step foot on foreign soil. If the FBI raise criminal proceedings against an individual within the UK then they will be indicted and taken in to custody by the local police and then extradition hearings would take place so that the individual could be taken to the US to stand trial.

I don't know what you think the CIA does, but they are certainly not law enforcement.

Reading details like what's claimed here is absolutely jaw dropping. MP's compromised by their own perversion, British secret services, blackmail, Russia, the KGB, the US, defeating the ends of justice. Absolute scandal.
MP's, the BBC, Celtic, and the secret services. Navigating this rabbit hole, and exposing abuse cover ups will be a daunting task. Neither the Scottish or UK Govts are up for it. If there is going to be any justice it'll have to come through public campaigning.

Despite their silence, and their pathetic claims that the boys club was a different entity, and their friends in the press playing to tbeir agenda in their' sordid sttempts to draw us into the whole squalid siruation, you better believe - that just like their church - their mhanky club will have taken out conprehensive insurance policies in preparation this whole situation worsening to a catastrophic level.
Good luck trying to get an insurance company willing to underwrite that eventuality.
