‘Special security measures’ to protect Peruvian bishop
Catholic World News - March 25, 2014
A Peruvian police official is carrying out “special security measures” to protect a bishop-- measures that the bishop insists in not needed, according to a Fides report.
“The new police chief of the division of Chimbote has forced me to [have] special security measures,” said Bishop Ángel Francisco Simón Piorno of Chimbote, who has denounced local corruption. “I do not believe anyone would want to hurt me, despite the crime wave that has reached its highest level in our city. I feel I am protected by God.”
