Poland to probe prelates in Dominican Republic pedophilia scandal, EFE
Santo Domingo.- Poland’s top prosecutor on Wednesday announced the launch of a probe into a bishop and a priest from that nation charged with sexually abusing minors in the Dominican Republic, EFE reports.
Andrzej Seremet’s announcement comes in the heels of the scandal of the recalled Vatican envoy Jozef Wesolowski and the priest Wojciech Gil (Padre Alberto), in the town of Juncalito (central).
in the announcement aired by Warsaw’s TVN, Office of the Prosecutor spokesman Mateusz Martyniuk said they’ve contacted the Polish Embassy in the region to gather more information into the allegations against Polish prelates. "We should get official confirmation that an investigation is underway (in Dominican Republic) and clarify details."
The Vatican recalled Wesolowski in late august while the Catholic Church suspended Gil in an unspecified date, as reports surfaced that they had sexually abused numerous minors during the nearly six years in the country.
