Judge grants Pell access to victim’s evidence

ABC News

A Victorian County Court judge has granted the Archbishop of Sydney, George Pell, access to parts of the court material from the trial of convicted paedophile Christian Brother Robert Best.

Cardinal Pell has been given 15 pages of the transcript of the trial.

His application was prompted by submissions to the Victorian parliamentary inquiry into child sexual abuse, claiming he was present when a victim detailed Best’s abuse to a priest in the 1960s.
