Vatican launches inquiry into sexual misconduct of anti-gay disgraced Cardinal Keith O’Brien
The Vatican has announced it is to investigate the sexual misconduct of the disgraced Cardinal Keith O’Brien.
Cardinal O’Brien, 75, resigned as leader of the Scottish Catholic Church in late February following accusations by several priests of inappropriate “sexual conduct”.
Now the inquiry has been announced by the Vatican, which will be carried out by Maltese Bishop Charles Scicluna.
In March, O’Brien admitted that his “sexual conduct” had been “below the standards expected” of him. A Vatican inquiry concluded in April – and no further action against Cardinal O’Brien was taken.
