The Pope’s new envoy presents credentials

Santo Domingo.- The Vatican’s new envoy Jude Thaddeus Okolo presented his credentials to president Danilo Medina during a National Palace ceremony Tuesday morning, in the presence of senior government officials.

Okolo, who came to the country November 18, arrived in the Hall of Ambassadors at 11am and spoke with Medina for around 10 minutes later.

Pope Francis named Okolo as his envoy in the country, after his predecessor Józef Wesolowski was ousted from the post on charges of sexually abusing boys.
