Australian police is set to question Cardinal Pell about his sexual misconduct.
Victoria Police is considering flying to Rome to interview Cardinal George Pell or interview him via videolink over complaints of sexual abuse against the cardinal made by two Ballarat men.
It is believed the brief of evidence has been returned to Victoria Police and assistant commissioner Steve Fontana is assessing the claims.
Sexual abuse claims made by two men against Cardinal George Pell could see Victoria Police investigators head to Rome. Fairfax Media understands it is almost certain police will seek to interview Cardinal Pell.
Police are investigating multiple allegations of child abuse against the cardinal, including allegations he touched the genitals of children while they swam at a public pool in Ballarat in the late 1970s.
“We have received advice from the DPP and will now take the time to consider it,” A Victoria Police spokeswoman said.
“However as, as with any investigation, it remains a decision for Victoria Police as to whether charges will be laid.”
The cardinal has denied the claims.
