Pell to face child abuse inquiry in Victoria

Australia’s most senior Catholic figure, Cardinal George Pell, has been called to face an inquiry into child sex abuse in Victorian institutions later this month.

A spokesman for Cardinal Pell, says he is scheduled to appear on May 27, to give evidence about the church’s handling of allegations of abuse by its clergy, while he was the Archbishop of Melbourne.

It has already been established throughout the inquiry, members of the Catholic clergy have abused at least 620 children in the state, over the past 80 years.
