Poland unseals indictment against priest charged with abusing boys

Santo Domingo.- Warsaw’s Regional Office of the Prosecutor communicated the conclusion of the investigation against Polish national Wojciech Gil (Padre Alberto) to its Dominican counterpart, with the indictment unsealed by Wolomin First Instance Court.

Gil is charged in connection with the alleged sexual abuse of at least six boys in the highland town Juncalito, northern Santiago province.

Santiago province prosecutor Luisa Liranzo remitted a missive from Warsaw deputy prosecutor Malgorzata Adamajtys, to Dominican Justice minister Francisco Dominguez, noting that Gil was charged with violating Polish laws.

The Polish authorities said they’ll soon inform Dominican officials of the date and place of the hearing against the accused.

The Dominican and Polish governments have affirmed that they’ll work to obtain a conviction based on the Principle of International Legal Cooperation, despite the absence of an extradition treaty.

Gil is still being held after a Warsaw court ruled to extend his pretrial detention.
