Vatican officials investigating sex abuse cases to visit Mexico on ‘zero tolerance’ drive

Two Vatican officials charged with investigating accusations of sexual abuse by clergy will visit Mexico later this month for a fact-finding mission.

The Mexican bishops’ conference said Archbishop Charles Scicluna and Monsignor Jordi Bertomeu will meet with church leaders and alleged victims during their week-long visit to the world’s second largest Roman Catholic country.

Scicluna and Bertomeu are part of a task force created last year by Pope Francis to assist in countries where the Church had no guidance for dealing with sexual abuse cases.

Archbishop Charles Scicluna and Monsignor Jordi Bertomeu led the Vatican’s 2018 investigation into sexual abuse in Chile, producing a 2,300-page report that sparked the resignation of several of the country’s top bishops.
