Canada-wide warrant issued for Nunavut priest

Sun News


Mounties have issued a Canada-wide warrant for a priest accused in a string of child sexual assaults in Nunavut.

Johannes Rivoire, who is now in his 80s, is accused of committing the offences between 1968 and 1970.

Police believe he has fled the country. Local media outlets report he’s living in France.

He’s been wanted on three sex-related charges since 1998, Cpl. Yvonne Niego said. At least two involved young girls.

“If this individual returns to Canada he will be arrested and brought before the courts to face justice,” RCMP said in a statement Thursday.
