Rev. Paul Abbass, shown here in 2009 with Roman Catholic Archbishop Anthony Mancini, will return to full-time parish duties this fall. Police dropped an investigation into his conduct as director of a drug rehabilitation centre in April.

ANTIGONISH A Roman Catholic priest will return to full-time duties this fall after police dropped an investigation into his conduct as director of a drug rehabilitation centre in Cape Breton.

Rev. Paul Abbass will resume his work in five parishes in the Diocese of Antigonish beginning Oct. 5.

Abbass was suspended from his duties in the diocese after someone from Talbot House complained to police in February.

But investigators said in April they found no evidence that would justify continuing their investigation.

Talbot House has never offered any details on the nature of the complaint against Abbass.

It has since closed, and Abbass has said he's disappointed in the way the province's Community Services Department conducted a review of the facility.
