Australia’s High Court has released the full set of submissions for Cardinal George Pell’s March 11 and 12 final appeal hearing against historic child sexual abuse crimes.
Pope Francis on Monday opened Holy Week by thanking his police and security forces for providing “a climate of serenity and order.”
Cardinal George Pell becomes the most senior Vatican official ever to face criminal charges of sexual abuse, as police in the Australian state of Victoria have summoned him to face multiple charges of “historical sexual assault offenses,” meaning offenses that generally occurred some time ago. No other details were provided, and Pell has rejected strenuously any such charges against him.
