Cardinal George Pell could be interviewed in Rome by Australian police over historic child sexual abuse allegations, please read here for previous post on allegations.
Cardinal Pell has called for an investigation into Australia's Victoria police and claimed he is the victim of a "scandalous smear campaign".
Victoria Police and assistant commissioner Steve Fontana are assessing the claims. In a statement, Victoria Police confirmed it has received advice from the Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP) in relation to both sets of allegations.
The cardinal has said he bore no ill feelings towards his accusers. "I bear no ill will and have no desire to cause them harm but what they say about me is not true," he said.
Pell added that he had not been approached by Sano for an interview.
