Sexual abuse accused still with Salvation Army

Two Salvation Army employees accused of sexually abusing children are still working for the church.

Commissioner Shaw Clifton said the alleged offenders - a man and a woman - now held management positions with the army.

"Neither of the two is any longer working in a direct or hands-on relationship with children," he said.

Mr Clifton said the alleged offences took place about 35 years ago.
