RTE must justify its allegations

RTE's appalling libel of Fr Kevin Reynolds, the missionary priest it falsely accused of abusing a teenage girl and fathering a child by her, has inevitably led to questions being asked about the accuracy of other aspects of the 'Prime Time Investigates: Mission to Prey' programme.
The family of the late Christian Brother Gerard Dillon, who was also accused of abuse by the same programme, has called upon RTE to prove the allegations which it made against him.
While the accusations against Br Dillon have not unravelled in the same dramatic manner as those against Fr Reynolds, that is not an unreasonable request.
