THE HAGUE, Netherlands — A Dutch commission investigating sexual molestation of children placed in government care over the past 65 years says it has received more than 100 reports of abuse in just over a month.

The government set up the commission in August to investigate alleged abuse dating back to 1945 and to establish whether child care authorities knew about it.It was established following reports of abuse of children sent to Catholic institutions in the 1950s and '60s.



The commission issued a statement Thursday saying more than 100 people — including victims and members of their families — had called a special telephone line to report abuse in both Catholic and non-Catholic institutions.

The commission will investigate the claims and expects to issue its final report in 2012.
