    Apparently the rest of the world new about this since last December ,however there was a suppression order for it not to be released here in Australia .

    Today that suppression order was lifted

    .Some months ago the Victorian Herald Sun newspaper had a front page story about the ban and couldn`t say much about it except to say "its in the news everywhere else but Australia " without mentioning George Pell or the Catholic Church .

    George Pell also became very high up at the Vatican ,the pressure is now on Pope Francis to excommunicate him from the Church.

    It will be interesting to see how that goes.

    You can bet your life there was a lot more accusations against Pell however lawyers only go for the couple that are more substantiated where they know they will get a conviction.

    Thanks for posting this wozza

    And, watch the watchtower morons jump all over this to take the heat off their own issues.

    It seems the catholic church and other institutions have had issues over the years.

    I am friends with guys that were abused by Risdale et al and its sickening to see the results of that .

    Vive la justice. No matter how and where.

    The guy is a massive hypocrite, or he is in deep denial. He rose up the ranks became Bishop, Archbishop, and finally Cardinal. 1966 became a Priest, 1997 Bishop, Archbishop 2001, Cardinal College 2003, 2014 became responsible for annual Vatican budget as Secretariat for the Economy.

    This video shows him rising up the ranks and before the Royal Commission, He denied all charges and said Child Abuse is abhorrent to him(just like the Watchtower corporation spokes person J R Brown) :

    Does Pope Francis have any other option other than defrocking cardinal George Pell ? According to the Catholic Churches teachings he remains a priest forever ,however the church could strip him of any of his official duties as a priest.

    This case has put the Catholic Church and the Vatican under the microscope worldwide given George Pell`s most senior position in the Vatican.

    If they want to save face around the world , in some small measure surely there is no other option open for Pope Francis .?

    So now we hear that George Pell will spend the next two weeks in jail /remand section till march the 13th before his sentencing .

    His bail was revoked .

    The { Catholic } whole world waits with baited breath ,what will happen to the most senior catholic in Australia by the Australian judiciary and what will happen in the Vatican with such a prominent member being convicted of child sexual abuse .

    How will Pope Francis respond now.
