Polish prosecutors ask Dominican Republic for information on nuncio accused of abuse

Catholic World News - September 25, 2013

Prosecutors in Poland are asking their counterparts in the Dominican Republic to provide them with information about sex-abuse charges against two Polish priests, including the former apostolic nuncio in the Caribbean country.

A Polish prosecutor said that he had asked whether the investigation of Archbishop Jozef Wesolowski’s conduct in the Dominican Republic had uncovered any evidence of abuse committed in Poland. Archbishop Wesolowski, who was recalled to Rome in August, faces the prospect of criminal charges for abuse; the Vatican has promised to cooperate with the Dominican investigation.

Polish authorities also asked for information involving another Polish priest, Father Wojciech Gil. Father Gil, who faces child-abuse and child-pornography charges in the Dominican Republic, reportedly brought some boys from that country to Poland with him on vacation.
