Archbishop of Sydney condemns treatment of Cardinal Pell: ‘Australians have a right to expect better’

(CNS) Public prosecutors have submitted recommendations to Victoria Police on whether to try Australian Cardinal George Pell on decades-old abuse allegations, but their advice has not been made public.

Until police decide how to proceed, Archbishop Anthony Fisher has said he will not be commenting on the case.

“Justice must be left to run its course,” Archbishop Fisher said in a statement this week.

Archbishop Fisher said Cardinal Pell, currently head of the Vatican Secretariat for the Economy, “has cooperated in every way with multiple police, parliamentary and Royal Commission investigations.” [More]
