Cardinal George Pell responds – will testify via video link

George Pell had said via his office that he will testify via video link to the royal commission into child abuse.

“The Cardinal faces allegations he attempted to buy the silence of an abuse victim; dismissed a victim’s complaint; moved an abusive priest around parishes; and was complicit in failings of the Melbourne archdiocese to deal with sexual abuse in the church.”

The Cardinal faces allegations he attempted to buy the silence of an abuse victim; dismissed a victim’s complaint; moved an abusive priest around parishes; and was complicit in failings of the Melbourne archdiocese to deal with sexual abuse in the church.

The Cardinal is too sick to travel but is ok to run the Catholic church’s finances. His office claims that he is an ally of victims and that Pell “has led from the front to put an end to cover ups, to protect vulnerable people and to try to bring justice to victims.”
