Archbishop Josef Wesolowski (67), convicted of paedophile crime, was found dead in Vatican


Recalled from Santo Domingo by in 2013, the archbishop was last year “reduced to the lay status” by a Vatican canonical court which found him guilty of systematic paedophile crime. He was accused of abuse of minors during his five years (2008-2013) as papal nuncio, a period when, allegedly, he regularly frequented an area in Santa Domingo known for child prostitution. He was also charged with “having procured and stored material from web sites showing minors involved in explicit sexual acts, real and simulated, as well as images of the sexual organs of minors, displayed for primarily sexual purposes.”
