Pope Francis accepts the resignation of a bishop who covered up child abuse

This Saturday, Pope Francis accepted the resignation of the metropolitan archbishop of the Polish diocese of Szczecin-Kamien, Andrzej Dziega, the Vatican reported in a bulletin. The local media Gazeta Wyborcza reports that Dziega is accused of covering up acts of pedophilia committed by a priest under his tutelage. The brief statement from the Holy See made no reference to these accusations.

Poland has seen a series of clerical child abuse scandals. In 2021, the Polish State Commission for Pedophilia Cases studied about 330 reports of pedophilia in the country. The organization concluded that 30% of the cases involving minors under 15 years of age were related to members of the clergy. With RT
