Wesolowski’s death is unfair to victims: National District prosecutor

Santo Domingo.– The National District prosecutor Yeni Berenice Reynoso said Friday that the death of former Polish archbishop and the Vatican’s former ambassador to Santo Domingo, who faced trial on charges of pedophilia in the Dominican Republic, is "unfair" to the victims.

"I always wondered why a new date was not given for the trial of Wesolowski, not even after leaving the hospital," the National District prosecutor wrote on her Twitter account.

According to a statement from the Vatican, Jozef Wesolowski, 67, was found dead in his Vatican room early Friday, where he had lived since last year, after he was placed under house arrest.

The Vatican said that an autopsy was to be carried out during the day and the results published as soon as possible, adding that Pope Francis was being kept fully informed.
