Australia’s most senior Catholic figure, Cardinal George Pell, has been charged with sex offences.

The charges relate to alleged “historical” incidents, police in the Australian state of Victoria said on Thursday.

Victoria Police Deputy Commissioner Shane Patton said the allegations were made by more than one person.

Cardinal Pell has consistently denied any wrongdoing.

The senior cleric, who is based in Vatican City, would be required to face the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 18 July.
