Pope Francis formed a new tribunal inside the Vatican to hear cases of abuse


SHAFAQNA – According to AP, the initiative, announced Wednesday, has significant legal and theological implications. The Vatican said Pope Francis had approved proposals made by his sexual abuse advisory board, which includes survivors of abuse as well as experts in child protection policies. The proposals call for a new mechanism by which the Vatican can receive and examine complaints of “abuse of office” by bishops, and bring them to trial in a Vatican tribunal.
