George Pell, Catholic Cardinal, charged with historical sexual assault offences

Australia’s most senior Catholic cleric, Cardinal George Pell, has been charged with historical sexual assault offences and ordered to appear in a Melbourne court.

Australia’s most senior Catholic cleric has been ordered to appear in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on July 18, after Victoria Police served charges on his legal representatives.

Cardinal Pell will return to Australia, as soon as possible, to clear his name following advice and approval by his doctors, who will also advise on his travel arrangements, a statement released by the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney said.

He has again strenuously denied all allegations — via redwolf.newsvine.com
