Papal Nuncio defends lack of response to Murphy report

The Papal Nuncio in Ireland is defending his decision not to respond to a draft report from the Commission of investigation into the Catholic Archdiocese of Dublin.

Speaking to the Irish Times, Archbishop Giuseppe Leanza said he did not respond because he was asked for comments on extracts which related to a time before he took over as Papal Nuncio.

The Murphy report published last week found that successive archbishops responded to clerical child sex abuse in the Diocese of Dublin with "denial, arrogance and cover-up".
