Vatican City (EFE). - The apostolic nuncio in the Dominican Republic, Josef Wesolowski, has been removed from office and there’s an ongoing investigation into allegations in his connection with several cases of alleged child abuse, Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi told Efe.

The confirmation comes just hours after senior bishop Agripino Nuñez Collado, head of the Catholic University (PUCCM) on Tuesday was the first senior official of the Dominican Church to cite the case.

“No one is above the law and anyone who commits a shameful crime must bear the consequences," the Dominican bishop said.

Journalist Nuria Piera, in a TV report resulting from a year-long investigation, alleges that Wesolowski paid for sex with minors in the Dominican Republic. "The fact is that we already had news that in the Colonial Zone (in the Dominican capital) they knew him very well, for going to look for minors.”

In addition to Wesolowski, the also Polish priest Alberto Gil Nojache allegedly abuse of minors in the town of Juncalito, Janico, Santiago, and took part in encounters with minors in the resort area of Juan Dolio, San Pedro.

Where is his picture behind bars?
I want this SOB arrested, tried and punished by the inquisition or whatever court has the jurisdiction, where he is now.
He will claim diplomatic immunity, of course, but this a..hole must be caught and punished.
Better than that an official DR justice team, to bring him back and put him through the paces of the DR jails and penal system, where he will last two and half days, if so lucky. Que maldito cabrón!

Cardenal Nickey is going to have coronary:

“Activist for a secular State says Catholic hierarchy "organized nuncio’s escape"

"Local clergy hierarchy organized a complete plan of escape (for Joséf Wosolowski) so he could evade Dominican justice, regardless of that he left behind many abused and traumatized children"

Read the rest @


Does anybody Know how Many Cardinals in history have gone into the Pokey, No Pun Intended?
