The Northern Marianas’ former bishop Tomas A. Camacho is facing a second sexual abuse lawsuit.

A 65-year-old former altar boy has come forward, alleging the former bishop sexually abused him when he was a 10-year-old in Guam.

The accuser, known only as B.C., filed a $US5 million lawsuit in the federal court in Guam against Mr Camacho, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Agana, and 50 other unnamed entities and persons.
