Sex abuse scandal in Colegio Mission in Cabo San Lucas - American students affected
Translated by Fulano from an article in Colectivo Pericú
San José del Cabo, B.C.S.- After accusations by girls at Colegio Mission in San José del Cabo were made public, which pointed out what could be considered indecent assault committed by the school's physical education teacher, Carlo Roberto Romero Peña, reporters from the American NBC network and its affiliate, Telemundo, showed up at the school to ask for an interview with the school's director, Carla González.
However, they were turned away by Colego Mission personnel, who said the reporters were, "inventing things," then they said "they could find themselves with problems," although later they admitted that the person who did that, "left the College the moment it was uncovered."
The abuse of the primary school girls at the college is documented with criminal complaints SJC/335/SEX/2012, SJC/341/SEX/2012 and SJC/342/SEX/2012.
To publicize the problem, the television network reporters who were covering the movie festival in the city yesterday were assigned the case, due to the fact there are relatives of American citizens who are also affected by the lewd acts which, according to the statements and indications of the girls, were committed by Carlo Roberto Romero Peña.
The person in charge of public relations at Colegio Mission was to have an interview with the school's director, Carla González, to explain how the events occurred and what the institution is doing to help the affected girls.
