Australia: Cardinal Pell attends hearing on sexual offence charges

Australian Cardinal George Pell attended a hearing in the Melbourne Magistrate's court on Monday, where the court will determine if there is enough evidence to warrant a trial against him. Protesters and supporters alike awaited outside the Melbourne Magistrates' Court, as Pell and his lawyer Robert Richter left the courthouse. One protester stated the she «will never forgive George Pell, he's a... Еще dirty lowdown rat.» Others made clear that they «want to see that he gets a fair trial» and that the «expectation of many people here that he will be punished for the sins of others is a completely illogical and unjust expectation.» Pell is Australia's most senior figure in the Catholic Church and is the third ranking official in the Vatican, where he is in charge of finances. He is facing sexual offence charges from multiple complainants, which he has vehemently denied and will plead not guilty to all charges.
