'You're a Disgrace': Cardinal Pell Heckled Leaving Melbourne Court

Cardinal George Pell was heckled by bystanders as he left court in Melbourne on February 26, the day a suppression order relating to reporting of his having been found guilty of child sexual abuse was lifted.Pell, Australia’s most senior Catholic and formerly the Vatican’s treasurer, was found guilty in December, but that finding could not be reported in Australia until February 26.Pell was found guilty on charges relating to the abuse of two 13-year-old boys that occurred in December 1996 and early 1997 at St Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne.A statement from Pell’s lawyers dated February 25 said Pell had “always maintained his innocence and continues to do so.” Credit: Aaron Langmaid via Storyful
