George Pellís Revelations of Huge Corruption in Vatican a Blow to Catholic Church

CARDINAL George Pellís startling revelations of huge corruption in the Vatican is another blow to the reputation of his church.
Pellís critics will say he made his claims just to distract attention from his much-criticised appearance in the witness box this week at the royal commission into child sex abuse.
But Pellís revelations in his interview with me tonight are a direct challenge to one of the deadliest accusations against him ó that he is a company man who covers up corruption.
Pell denies he was part of the scandalous cover-up of paedophile priests in Ballarat and then in Melbourne.
He argues that he actually cleaned up the church, creating a compensation fund and making sure paedophiles would never again be protected.
