  • May 2022 : #Metoo in the Church of Denmark

During summer and fall of 2021, a serious case of abuse of confessional decorum has been ongoing in the Church of Denmark. Several women reported receiving unwanted sexual attention from parish priest in Copenhagen, Flemming Pless. He has taken a leave of absence after complaints were filed to the bishop with several testimonies of both abusive behavior and breach of confidentiality. Almost a year after the first reports, the case is still undecided in May 2022. The newspaper BT has alleged that, because the handling of the complaints by the Ministry of Ecclesiastical Affairs has taken a long time, it might be too late to report the cases to the police.
