    George Pell, Catholic Cardinal, charged with historical sexual assault offences

    Australia's most senior Catholic cleric, Cardinal George Pell, has been charged with historical sexual assault offences and
    ordered to appear in a Melbourne court.

    Key points:
    • Charges involve multiple complainants
    • Pell has always maintained his innocence and strenuously denied any wrongdoing
    • Victoria Police says charging process has involved "common and standard practice"
    Victoria Police Deputy Commissioner Shane Patton said the Vatican-based cardinal was required to appear at the Melbourne
    Magistrates' Court on July 18.

    He said the charges were served on Pell's legal representatives in Melbourne, and that they involved multiple complainants.

    Last July, police confirmed they were formally investigating complaints about offences alleged to have occurred in Ballarat in the 1970s.
    Pell has always maintained his innocence and strenuously denied any wrongdoing.

    UPDATE ...

    Cardinal George Pell appears at Melbourne Magistrates' Court to fight historical sexual offence allegations



    Cardinal George Pell will face a four-week committal hearing next March as he fights historical sexual offence allegations.

    Australia's most senior Catholic cleric has faced his second hearing at the Melbourne Magistrates' Court, after he was charged by Victoria Police
    detectives in June with offences involving multiple complainants.

    The exact detail and nature of the charges have not been made public.

    The court heard about 50 witnesses will give evidence at Cardinal Pell's committal hearing, which will determine whether there is enough evidence
    to commit him to stand trial.

    Cardinal Pell strenuously denies the allegations.

    I hope they've got his passport before the kiddie fiddlers try and hide him.
