Senior figures in the Church of England "colluded"
Senior figures in the Church of England "colluded" with a former bishop who abused young men, an independent review has found. (From the BBC).
If this happen in any other organization heads would fall and there would be prosecutions. But in this case I have no confidence of that happening.

The relevant bishop was jailed for 32 months.

Obstructions of justice charges could and should have been brought against various individuals within the church hierarchy, although TBH these are always difficult to prove - just look at the inability of prosecutors to bring charges against corporate bodies in the aftermath of Savile.
