‘Torture’ monk appeals conviction

‘A former monk has appeared in court to contest his conviction for torturing children more than 40 years ago. [..]

In 2003, Murphy, known as Brother Benedict, was found guilty of giving children painful jolts with an electrical gadget. [..]

As well as Brother Benedict’s electric shocks, the pupils were whipped with knotted laces and made to eat their own vomit.

One boy’s arm was broken when the monk lost his temper over a cheeky comment.

A woodwork teacher at the same school is appealing against a jury’s verdict that he sexually abused boys there.’
