Cardinal George Pell, the Vatican Treasurer and the Pope’s Top Advisor, Is Charged with Sexual Assault Crimes

Rome: Catholic Cardinal, George Pell, who is the Vatican treasurer and a close advisor to the Pope, has been charged with sexual-assault crimes.  For decades, he has been dogged by accusation of covering up child molestation and rape cases involving the clergy.  Cardinal Pell denies the charges and says he is a victim of character assassination.  It is unknown whether Pope Francis will support Pell in court, but he granted him a leave of absence to go to Australia to face the charges.

Several years ago  Cardinal Pell appeared on Australia’s 60 Minutes television show and denied that he offered $50,000 to a family to stop them from reporting sexual-abuse to the police. However, a letter with the offer was produced, showing that he had lied.  The “Pell’s Process” was a policy that Pell developed in 1996 under his ‘Toward Healing’ program that consisted of making payments up to $50,000 to families of abused children to keep the crimes out of court and the press. –GEG
