Archbishop caught with 100,000 child porn files

by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer

A former Roman Catholic Archbishop and diplomat now under arrest in the Vatican had more than 100,000 child porn files saved on his office computer, according to an Italian newspaper.

Il Corriere della Serra reported that Jozef Wesolowski's computer was seized and analyzed by Vatican detectives preparing to prosecute him on several counts of child abuse.

According to the report, the Archbishop's porn collection included some 160 videos showing teenage boys performing sexual acts on each other and on adults, and more than 86,000 pornographic photos.

The collection was reportedly 'meticulously archived in several category-based folders.'

Investigators said that at least another 45,000 pictures were deleted, while a second stash of material was found on a laptop Wesolowski used during his trips abroad.

Wesolowski was a protégé of the late John Paul II, and was the Vatican's envoy to Central Asia from 2002 to 2008 and to the Dominican Republic from 2008 to 2012.

He resigned his diplomatic post and fled the Dominican Republic amid charges that he had hired underage boys for sex. Wesolowski later turned up in the Vatican, which refused to extradite him to face charges in the Dominican Republic because there is no provision for extradition in Vatican law.

However, the child abuse charges were also investigated by Vatican officials, and Wesolowski was suspended from priestly duties in May 2013. On June 23, the Vatican announced that Wesolowski had been 'laicized,' or removed from the priesthood.

On September 23 he was arrested by Vatican officials, and is being held on criminal charges of molesting boys.

Wesolowski is confined in a small apartment in the basement of the Collegio dei Penitenzieri, a convent located in the building housing the Vatican criminal court and military police, just a short walk from the apartments of Pope Francis in St. Martha's Palace.

His criminal trial is scheduled to begin in January 2015.
