Cardinal George Pell’s trial by media achieves justice for no one

Just when you think the demonisation of Cardinal George Pell can’t get any worse, it does. And with every allegation, as flimsy and contagious as they are, comes the damaging insinuation that where there’s smoke there’s fire.
 The fanfare around ABC’s 7.30 program last week would make you think Pell has been accused of the most heinous crimes, that he is the master paedophile sitting atop the global paedophile ring that is the Catholic Church.

Parents demand George Pell portrait is taken off Mentone school hall

Parents at a Catholic primary school in Mentone are agitating to have a portrait of Cardinal George Pell removed from their school hall after allegations of sexual abuse emerged against the priest recently.
On Wednesday night, ABC's 7.30 aired detailed allegations made by former students of St Alipius primary school in Ballarat, who alleged Cardinal Pell would play with them in the swimming pool and molest them by touching their genitals under water.

Media Watch Dog: The ABC/Spigelman court for instant ‘justice’

STOP PRESS
● 7.30’s LOUISE MILLIGAN DEFENDS 7.30’s LOUISE MILLIGAN
What a stunning performance by ABC reporter Louise Milligan on 7.30 last night.
On Wednesday, the powers-that-be at the taxpayer funded public broadcaster decided to devote the entire 30 minutes of 7.30 to allegations about what George Pell did between four and three decades ago in Ballarat and Torquay respectively. Cardinal Pell declined to be interviewed for the hatchet job and 7.30 — according to what an ABC spokesperson has told MWD — decided not to let anyone speak in his defence.

Leaks add a bitter flavour to allegations against Cardinal Pell

Wednesday night’s 7.30 program on ABC television carried allegations against Cardinal George Pell that, if true, are devastating: life-ruining for victims such as Damian Dignan and Lyndon Monument; confronting for all citizens committed to the wellbeing of children; and earth-shattering for Catholics who still have faith in their church. The ABC report is also troubling for those of us concerned about due process and the rule of law.
With the benefit of hindsight, we can all say it would have been better if onlookers such as Les Tyack in the Torquay Surf Club — claiming to have credible evidence of unseemly behaviour by an adult such as Pell towards children — went to the police promptly rather than waiting 30 years. As it was put on 7.30, “One summer day, (Tyack) says he witnessed a strange incident, so strange it later compelled him to go to police.” The incident is alleged to have occurred in the mid-1980s.

Cardinal George Pell won’t be asked to stand down from Vatican post, church insiders say

CARDINAL George Pell will not be asked to stand down from his powerful Vatican post while a police investigation into alleged child sex offences continues, church insiders say.
But the cardinal could be forced to step aside if the alleged abuse is reported to the church’s internal Towards Healing scheme.
There have been calls for the cardinal, who works closely with Pope Francis as the Vatican’s finance chief, to stand down this week following explosive allegations he fondled two boys while swimming with them in the 1970s.

George Pell at the Ballarat pool: 'Everything he did was done with a grandeur'

Cardinal George Pell was a larger-than-life figure at the Eureka pool in Ballarat through the summers of the late 1970s. This was when – it is now sensationally alleged – he sexually abused two boys in the pool.
"A big, strong, good-looking man," says Paul Tatchell​, a former mayor of Moorabool shire and himself a victim of rape by a notorious Catholic priest in Ballarat – Edward Dowlan​ – in the bad old days. Pell was on Richmond's reserves list to play footy 20 years before. He gave up sport for the church. But he had kept in shape.

'Cover-up culture' serves church poorly

REQUIREMENTS for celibacy and the exclusion of women from the priesthood were areas the Catholic Church could consider as it grapples with issues of child sexual abuse.
Former Dean of the North Coast Parish of the Catholic Church, John Dobson, speaking in the wake of the latest allegations levelled again Cardinal George Pell, said psychologists dealing with offending priests have raised issue with the benefits of enforced celibacy.
Father Dobson said once people were set up as direct representatives of God it opened a lot of doors to odd places.

Police must interview Pell

Jesuit priest and human rights lawyer Frank Brennan has called for Victoria Police to travel to Rome immediately to interview Ballarat’s Cardinal George Pell over allegations of child sexual abuse.
In an opinion piece for public affairs publication Eureka Street the outspoken priest said the whole saga wreaked of injustice and incompetent policing. He also called for the Victorian Government to take resolute action and demand Victoria Police chief commissioner Graham Ashton get to the bottom of the leaks.

There is one point where the Pell cheerleaders are right

Is there a more polarising figure in Australia than Cardinal George Pell?
His clipped speech, at times imperious language, and senior position in a church that failed lamentably to deal with paedophiles in its own ranks has left him detested by many.

Cardinal George Pell child sex claims before public prosecutor

Victoria Police yesterday opened the door to charging Cardinal ­George Pell with child sex offences as senior Catholics stridently backed the faith’s third most senior figure amid a fresh wave of devastating publicity over alleged abuse.
Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton yesterday made clear that charging Cardinal Pell was a live option for the force after confirming the Office of Public Prosecutions was investigating multiple allegations against the Vatican’s Prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy.
The Australian has seen no evidence in the public realm to support charges against Cardinal Pell and Mr Ashton has declared that the force will be guided by the ­direction of the OPP.

George Pell: Vatican unlikely to respond to child abuse allegations until police investigation complete, expert says

The Vatican is not likely to respond to child abuse allegations against Cardinal George Pell until the outcome of police investigations, according to a Vatican expert.
"The Vatican will want to wait and see how any investigation proceeds," Christopher Lamb, correspondent for Catholic journal The Tablet, told Lateline.
"I don't think they'll be taking any kind of actions or any steps before that legal process concludes."
Mr Lamb, currently in Krakov, Poland to cover World Youth Day, said the allegations against Cardinal Pell had "certainly been on the radar here".

Victoria Police must interview Cardinal George Pell for sake of justice

The presumption of innocence is fundamental to our legal system and to natural justice.
Cardinal George Pell, the third highest-ranking leader of the Catholic Church, is accused by a number of people of child sexual abuse, for which he has been under investigation for more than a year by Victoria Police's Taskforce Sano, established following the state parliamentary inquiry that was a precursor to the federal Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

George Pell and Denis Hart became archbishops but Father Tony Bongiorno didn't

  • By a Broken Rites researcher, article updated 25 July 2016
According to Broken Rites research, the Melbourne Catholic archdiocese has finally been forced to admit that Father Anthony Bongiorno committed sexual crimes against children during his 30 years working in Melbourne parishes. Anthony Salvatore Bongiorno began training for the priesthood about 1960, aged 25, in the same trainee group as George Pell and Denis Hart, both of whom eventually became archbishops of Melbourne. In 1994, Pell (then an auxiliary bishop in Melbourne) officiated at a requiem mass for Bongiorno's brother Sam. Anthony Bongiorno's child-sex crimes were covered up until some were exposed in the mid-1990s. The total number of Bongiorno's abused children is unknown. For example, in 1980, a woman in Bongiorno's parish learned that her son (aged 11) was a Bongiorno victim but this woman was murdered before she could expose Bongiorno about her son's abuse.

Archbishop George Pell hired a publicity firm to paint him as "helping victims"

By a Broken Rites researcher

In 1996, Broken Rites informed the Australian public that the Catholic Church had been harbouring Father Nazareno Fasciale (pronounced "Fah-SHAH-lay") while he was committing crimes against children. Police charged Fasciale but he suddenly died. Then church leaders, including George Pell, gave this pedophile a grand funeral. One church leader said that the church is "immensely proud" of Fasciale. When Broken Rites exposed this (and other) church cover-ups, George Pell's diocese (Melbourne) went into damage control, hiring a public relations firm to announce the "Melbourne Response", a forerunner of the church's "Towards Healing" strategy.
Father Fasciale (pronounced "Fah-SHAH-lay") was harboured in the Melbourne Catholic archdiocese for 44 years while he committed sexual crimes against girls and boys. The cathedral authorities continually ignored any complaints from Fasciale's victims. Fasciale knew that the church would protect him.

Why is Cardinal George Pell reluctant to re-appear in Australia?

By a Broken Rites researcher, article updated 26 July 2016
Cardinal George Pell is a frequent flyer, travelling in Business Class. During his years as Archbishop of Sydney, he would regularly make the flight to Rome so as to keep an eye on career opportunities at the Vatican. Now he has become the third most important person in the Vatican. With a Vatican passport, he still goes on plane trips from his Rome headquarters, but he is reluctant to appear in public in Australia.

George Pell: The surf club allegation

When local businessman Les Tyack walked into the Torquay Surf Club change rooms one day in the summer of 1986-87, he encountered a scene that struck him as "very odd" — George Pell with three boys he estimates were aged between 8 and 10.
  • Local businessman, Les Tyack, says he witnessed an "odd" incident involving George Pell at the Torquay Surf Club in 1986-87
  • He did nothing at the time but last year reported it to the Royal Commission and Victoria Police's Taskforce SANO
  • Cardinal Pell emphatically denies ever abusing anyone

"I said, 'Hi George', and at that time he was towelling, had the towel going across his shoulders drying his back, but he was facing three young boys standing about three or four metres across from him," Mr Tyack told 7.30.
He thought it was "a little strange", but he put his gear onto the bench and had a shower.
