Sydney Archbishop: “Relentless Attacks on Cardinal Pell”

Archbishop Anthony Fisher of Sydney has condemned “relentless character attacks" on Cardinal Pell, the Vatican’s financial chief and former Sydney archbishop. An ongoing smear campaign is randomly accusing Pell of having abused two choirboys while he was archbishop in Melbourne.

Fisher states that “even churchmen" should be treated fairly: “Australians have a right to expect better from their legal systems and the media.”
