Sex Scandal: Pope’s Economic Minister to Face Charges
Vatican Treasurer, Cardinal George Pell, would face a court hearing in Australia in 2018, a Magistrate said on Friday.
Pell is to answer what the police described as “historical sexual offences’’; he is the most Senior Roman Catholic Official to face such accusations.
Pell, 76, a top adviser to Pope Francis, did not speak as he was escorted to and from Melbourne Magistrates’ Court by police through a group of media, protesters and supporters.
He was not required to enter a plea.
Australian police said in June Pell had been summoned to appear on charges of “historical sexual offences’’ from multiple complainants.
