CWN Editor's Note: The preparation of an independent report on the handling of sex-abuse complaints in the Munich archdiocese cost over $1.5 million, CNA Deutsch has reported.

The report offered some criticism of Pope-emeritus Benedict for his handling of complaints during his tenure as Archbishop of Munich. But it cleared the retired Pontiff of any charge that he covered up evidence of clerical wrongdoing.

The report also criticized the current Archbishop, Cardinal Reinhard Marx.
