Chilean bishop cleared by Vatican of sex-abuse charge

June 23, 2014

The Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) has cleared a Chilean bishop of sex-abuse charges.

After a lengthy investigation, the CDF concluded that allegations against Bishop Cristian Contreras Molina of San Felipe were false. A public prosecutor has also said that he found no evidence to support the charges.

"I always said that this accusation was a slander," the bishop said. "Now I'm at peace."
