Poland has announced plans to double jail terms for paedophiles after a documentary on priest sex abuse sparked outrage in the country.
Convicted paedophiles could now face a maximum sentence of 30 years or, in the most serious cases, life in prison.
The documentary includes harrowing testimonies from victims and has been viewed more than 18 million times.
However the ruling Law and Justice party says the legal amendments have been in the works for months.
The documentary "Only Don't Tell Anyone" includes secret camera footage of victims confronting priests about their alleged abuse.
Archbishop Wojciech Polak, the leader of Poland's Roman Catholic Church, has apologised to the victims.
In March, the Polish Church admitted that almost 400 clergy had sexually abused minors over the past 30 years. »
