Catholic Church officials say Cardinal George Pell’s career in the Vatican is almost certainly over, even if he is cleared of historical sexual abuse offences. Cardinal Pell has stood aside as Prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy of the Holy See and will return to Melbourne to defend the charges in court. He has been summonsed to appear in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 26 July, and he has told a press conference in Rome that the allegations are false and being formally charged will give him the opportunity to clear his name.
