    Nothing on the Antipodean News sites

    - does mention that Pope Francis has removed him from his advisory panel though

    Secret Trials - in Australia?

    China maybe...

    The Vatican especially the cardinals who think they are immune from their diplomatic priviliges.

    The Vatican knew about the sexual abuses by priests for decades as they sat on the abuses files and did nothing. It's all about the damage limitation exercise and protection of their financial assets at the expense of the abused kids/adults.

    All bluff about their canon law is nigh. Canon law only applies to the internal workings of the church just like rules at work only pertain to the workplace itself. It's time that high ranking priests/bishops/cardinals be tried in courts except Ireland for their cover up and inaction and moving predatory priests from parish to parish until found out.

    Once you go after their monies then their behaviour would change. It's money and absolute power that governs their mindset all along.

    Don't trust the Vatican even their cheap words doesn't cut it. Pope Francis words are cheap as his actions defines it cos due to lack of his real action on the abused kids.

    We have just seen Father Wilson released from detention last week after his conviction was overturned in a clear case of Miscarriage of Justice

    I hope we are not look at another one...

    Yes i am aware of some few good priests. But the institutional school that i went to , taught me not to trust the church whatsoever especially leaders, superiors,high ranking priests not even their crocodile tears. They have known abuses for decades and did nothing.

    I know one priest who broke the confessional seal and fondled school girl's vagina in the confession box. The nuns believed that priest but not 14 years old deaf schoolgirl just because he was a priest which isnt good enough.Hence their deference was the problem.

    Knew one who was sexually abusing deaf boys for some 40 years as i didn't know that when i first came into school. Then i avoided him cos i had seen him doing to other boys at night. Then i heard from very eldery deaf man that he was sexually abused by that same man which shocked me cos the numbers of years he was in that school until i entered that school.

    One thing is clear for me personally i don't ever trust the church especially the higher ups the more you go up the ladder the more corrupted that you would be. They just knew and kept shut their mouths and moved their finances at the expense of sexually abused kids.

    "Little is known about the nature of the charges on which Cardinal Pell has been condemned because the entire trial and a second trial that has yet to take place are covered by a strict suppression order issued by the presiding judge, Peter Kidd. The order prohibits reporting on the case in any of the country’s media until the second trial has taken place to avoid prejudicing his case in both instances. The judge has prohibited the publication of the number of complainants in either of the two trials as well as the number and nature of the charges, except for the fact that the charges relate to “historical child sexual offenses.” "

    It was a jury's decision, and in Australia the RCC's name stinks to High Heaven. And quite rightly.

    But it's a very peculiar situation.

    I hate the RCC (the pagan institution, that is) but you do have to wonder if Pell was given a fair Trial.

    So now we know where the term 'Kangaroo Court' comes from.

    It's always difficult to assemble a Defence against an ancient allegation (which is why many Jurisdictions have Statutes of Limitations) and Pell's age,77, would again have been a handicap in the long lead-up to the trial and then during the trial.

    It's strange that it isn't even mentioned in Irish news nor bbc news. However it showed up in other news outlets such as this-
