Pell resumes royal commission testimony



Cardinal George Pell has resumed giving his evidence to the child abuse royal commission from Rome.

Cardinal Pell is giving evidence via video link from Rome because he’s too ill to fly to Australia. He has appeared before the commission on two previous occasions in Australia.

The cardinal told waiting media earlier in the day that he had “the full backing of the Pope” after a weekly meeting with him earlier in the day.
