Dozens of Australian journalists and publishers are set to face trial over coverage of ex-Vatican treasurer George Pell's child sex abuse case reporting

MELBOURNE - Dozens of Australian journalists and publishers are set to face trial in November over coverage of ex-Vatican treasurer George Pell’s child sex abuse conviction in 2018, facing charges that they breached an Australia-wide gag order in the case.

Pell was found guilty in December 2018 of sexually assaulting two choirboys, but reporting on the case was gagged so as not to prejudice another trial on separate charges. The second case was later dropped, and the suppression order was lifted in February 2019. Pell’s conviction was overturned by Australia’s High Court in April.

The prosecution is seeking one trial, which would be held before a judge, but the lawyer representing the charged media organisations and reporters said there appeared to be 13 separate controversies.

There are too many laws protecting child molesters. One would almost think that child molesters have permeated the system of justice. In the US we have statute of limitations, 7 years, which protects child molesters (rapists). News isn't allowed to report local child abuse.

Being persecuted for printing the truth about the Vatican's highest ranking pedophile, so far.

Another 'willy fiddler' with almost papal immunity. The RC church is a truly a global disgrace with its insipid condemnation and lacklustre approach to prosecution against child abusers at all levels.

Now go get the Clinton’s for Jeffrey Epstein and his Pedo island... smh

I dunno Australia, maybe preventing journalists from reporting on things doesn’t work
