Abuse

Spanish priest excommunicated

A Catholic parish priest from Mallorca has been suspended from duty and expelled from church for sexual abuse of minors. On 21st of March the church court of the bishopric Mallorca has found the 60 year old Pere Barceló Rigo guilty of having regularly abused at least three girls from ten to eleven years in his parish Can Picafort in the 1990s.

With that a punishment founded on church law has been imposed for the first time in Spain. In church law the violation against the commandment of chastity in dealing with minors is defined as serious criminal offence. Bishop Javier Salinas imposed the maximum penalty. With it he referred to the instructions of former Pope Benedict XVI in dealing with paedophilia in the church from the year 2010.

Civil legal proceedings are now awaiting the convicted man with a maximum penalty of 18 years prison.
