Australia’s highest ranking catholic, Cardinal George Pell is set to be charged with serious sex offences today, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.
Victoria Police are expected to confirm details of the allegations within hours.
The 76-year-old is currently based at the Vatican and it is not yet certain whether he will return home to face the charges.
As Australia has no extradition treaty with the Vatican, he could avoid prosecution if he chooses not to return to Victoria.
The publication also reports that Victoria Police will not comment on reports thus far.
Stay tuned for more updates to come.
