Ex-Vatican ambassador to Dominican Republic defrocked

The ambassador sexually abused many children in the slums of Santo Domingo

Vatican City: The Vatican's former ambassador to the Dominican Republic has been convicted by a church tribunal of sex abuse and has been defrocked, the Vatican said on Friday.

Polish Roman Catholic archbishop Jozef Wesolowski, who was recalled to Rome last year amid claims that he sexually abused a number of children in the slums of Santo Domingo, was found guilty by the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and can no longer perform priestly duties.
