“This is where the actual Catholic Church has to go through renewal,” Cameron said.
“It has to acknowledge the crimes that were committed on children.” As Pell left the courthouse, a dozen Victoria police officers formed a protective circle around him, pushing their way through a media scrum as protesters and supporters shouted at the cardinal. ” one woman yelled, while another screamed: “You were supposed to protect the children!
To them, Pell has been unfairly condemned before the facts of the case are known.
“We’re coming here open-minded — we’d like to hear the facts,” said Trevor Atkinson, who has met Pell previously.
The Baltimore Sun reports a news release issued Monday by the Fallston Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Company says Chief Will Rosenberg learned of suspected ongoing harassment and a possible sexual assault among members of the company less than two weeks ago, and notified the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Cristie Kahler says the ensuing investigation brought charges based on two specific incidents: an attempted sexual assault of a 17-year-old male member during summer on company property, and a harassment incident on Nov. The four suspects are men whose names will be released once the three warrants and one criminal summons are served.
we are calling them to account,” she said through tears. For Pell, the charges are a threat to his freedom, his reputation and his career.
Pell said he intends to continue his work as a prefect of the church’s economy ministry once the case is resolved.
Advocates for abuse victims have long railed against Francis’ decision to appoint Pell to the high-ranking position in the first place; at the time of his promotion in 2014, Pell was already facing allegations that he had mishandled cases of clergy abuse during his time as archbishop of Melbourne and, later, Sydney.
So far, Francis has withheld judgment of Pell, saying he wants to wait for Australian justice to run its course.
Pell, Australia’s highest-ranking Catholic and Pope Francis’ top financial adviser, is accused of sexually abusing multiple people years ago in his Australian home state of Victoria, making him the most senior Vatican official ever charged in the Catholic Church sex abuse crisis.
Details of the charges have yet to be released to the public, though police have described them as “historical” sexual assault offenses — meaning crimes that occurred years ago. But on Wednesday, his lawyer told the court that the 76-year-old cardinal plans to formally plead not guilty at a future court date.
“For the avoidance of doubt and because of the interest, I might indicate that Cardinal Pell pleads not guilty to all charges and will maintain the presumed innocence that he has,” lawyer Robert Richter told the court.
