#SexScandal : French Cardinal Barbarin faces charges of covering up sexual abuses by priest.

French Cardinal Barbarin faces charges of covering up sexual abuses by priest.




French Cardinal Philippe Barbarin will go on trial in April on charges of covering up for a priest accused of abusing children in his Lyon diocese over 25 years ago, a court ruled Tuesday.

Barbarin, the most senior French Catholic leader to be tried for allegedly failing to report a predator priest, will go on trial on April 4 next year along with six co-defendants, the court in Lyon said.

The trial is set to run for three days.

The 66-year-old cardinal is accused of failing to report priest Bernard Preynat to authorities after a former scout in 2014 accused the cleric of abusing him in the 1980s.

Barbarin left the priest in his post, where he had contact with children, until 2015.

The scandal has tarnished the image of one of the French church's most media-friendly figures.



The cardinal has denied any wrongdoing, claiming he did not know how to go about dealing with allegations dating back over two decades.
