Testifying with Support (ENGLISH)
A Catholic priest accused of sexually abusing children during his time in Igloolik is facing 74 charges stemming from complaints made by 39 victims. 65 year old Eric Dejaeger will face all the charges in one mega trial. Big Trials pose challenges for the people coming forward, and also the court. Northwest Territories MLA Norman Yakeleya wants to offer his help because they created solutions to deal with a similar trial in Inuvik in the 1990's. Yakeleya spoke with the CBC's Abraham Tagalik.
