The International Criminal Court (ICC) has turned down a bid to bring charges against Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI for the “Vatican hierarchies’” alleged complicity in the “sex abuse scandal” in the U.S. Catholic Church, Italian Catholic newspaper Avvenire reported this morning.

 

The Hague ruled that “the Court does not have jurisdiction over this issue,” after an appeal was presented to it by a New York-based association.

 

Jeffrey Lena, the attorney representing the Holy See, called the complaint a “ludicrous publicity stunt and a misuse of international judicial processes.”

  1. Is there much more to it.Will skeletons tumble from the cupboard. Will many Gaylords be exposed? Like a person from The Archdiocese of Bombay once claimed that a Bishop has fathered a child from a nun?
