SHANNON DEERY HERALD SUN JUNE 01, 2015
CARDINAL George Pell will be asked to appear at the Royal Commission later this year.
Pressure has been building on the commission to formally request the Cardinal’s appearance at the second stage of the Ballarat hearings.
Because he lives at the Vatican, as an adviser to Pope Francis, he cannot be summonsed.
But in a statement today the Royal Commission said they had formally asked Dr Pell to appear.
He has reiterated his willingness to cooperate with the commission on several occasions.
The appearance will be his third during the commission’s hearings.
