Vat­i­can forms probe panel


The Vat­i­can, the high­est seat of au­thor­ity in the Ro­man Catholic Church hi­er­ar­chy, has formed a one-mem­ber panel to probe the rape al­le­ga­tions against Franco Mu­lakkal. Sources said that a church rep­re­sen­ta­tive from In­dia is in the Vat­i­can to dis­cuss the is­sue of a rape charge against the Bishop by a Ker­ala-based nun. The de­vel­op­ment fol­lowed af­ter the nun wrote to the Apos­tolic Nun­cia­ture — the rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Pope in In­dia — de­scrib­ing the or­deal she al­legedly went through at the hands of Bishop Mu­lakkal.
