Prominent Chilean priest accused of abuse
Catholic World News - April 23, 2010
A Chilean prosecutor launched an investigation on April 22 into whether Father Fernando Karadima Fariña, a revered 80-year-old priest, sexually abused five men.

Earlier in the week, the Chilean hierarchy issued an apology to all victims of clerical sexual abuse.
