Case of priest Labaki to be handled by Vatican
A+ A-

BEIRUT: The Beirut Maronite Diocese said the case of priest Mansour Labaki was an “ecclesiastical” one to be handled by the Vatican. 

In a statement issued Friday, the Diocese also urged media professionals to report on the issue “responsibly” and respect the authority of the Vatican. 

News emerged this week that Labaki, 73, was convicted by the Vatican of molesting more than three children and for soliciting sex. 

He is currently carrying out his sentence of solitary penitence in a Lebanese monastery. Labaki’s family will hold a news conference Saturday at 4 p.m. to respond to the verdict at their Baabdat residence.
