Vatican rules: Cardinal Ladaria will not testify in French court
October 19, 2018
CWN Editor's Note: The Vatican has informed French authorities that Cardinal Luis Ladaria Ferrer, the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, will not testify in a French court at the trial of Cardinal Philippe Barbarin of Lyon. The French cardinal is charged with failing to take action against a priest who was found guilty of abuse; court documents show that Cardinal Ladaria wrote to Cardinal Barbarin, recommending that he take action “while avoiding public scandal.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
