In recent years, the Casa Pia de Lisboa made world headlines because of a major Child sexual abuse scandal. Incidents reportedly began occurring starting in the 1970's, but were only revealed in 2002. Many prominent people were arrested, including Paulo Pedroso, (former Socialist minister, with charges later dropped), Portuguese TV host Carlos Cruz (television presenter) and former ambassador Jorge Ritto, among others.

As a result, the scandal and the Lisbon trial inundated public life with sordid child abuse stories, leading to a media circus from 2003 to 2005. As of 2007, the trial continues in Lisbon.
