A Brazilian clergyman has been suspended for sending a naked selfie picture to his alleged mistress via his cell phone.
“Father Alfredo Rosa Borges has been suspended from his duties,” AFP quoted a diocesan spokesman of Campos de Goytacazes municipality, located in the northern area of Rio de Janeiro State, as saying on Tuesday.
He added that the Brazilian priest, who is known for his conservative views on moral issues, also faces excommunication from the Roman Catholic Church.
In the picture, which has been circulating on online media since it was posted last week, Borges can be seen posing naked in front of a mirror.
The O Dia daily reported that the priest has admitted to sending the picture, but denies having a relationship with the recipient.
