Lawyers defending Cardinal George Pell on historical sexual offences have requested documents from ABC journalist Louise Milligan and Melbourne University Press relating to a book about the senior Catholic published last year.

The book written by Milligan called Cardinal: the Rise and Fall of George Pell was voluntarily removed from Victorian bookstores after Cardinal Pell was charged in July.

The request for documents was made during a hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court today.

The 76-year-old is facing multiple charges of historical sexual offences involving multiple victims after an investigation by Victoria Police’s SANO Taskforce.

Cardinal Pell has strenuously denied any wrongdoing.
