Catholic order in France begins dismissal proceedings for priest accused of abusing Inuit

LYON, FRANCE — The leadership of a Catholic order in France has begun dismissal proceedings against a priest accused of sexually abusing Inuit children in Nunavut.

A 10-member delegation led by Nunavut Tunnagivik Inc., a group representing Nunavut Inuit, has been in Paris and Lyon this week to seek the extradition of Johannes Rivoire.

They met with French and Oblate officials and with Rivoire himself to try and persuade him to fly back to Canada on an extra seat they booked on their return flight.

At a news conference Thursday in Lyon, members of the delegation said Rivoire denied any wrongdoing and refused to leave France.

Tanya Tungilik, whose late father alleged that he was sexually abused by Rivoire in Naujaat when he was 13 years old, described confronting Rivoire as coming face-to-face with « the monster. »

« He has no remorse, » she said. « I left. I didn’t want to hear his lies. »

Tungilik said she blames Rivoire for her father’s death.
