Wrong again (!!)
Here's part of the real story from CNS:
An Indian priest who is accused of sexually molesting two teenage girls while working in Minnesota from 2004 to 2005 told UCA News, the Asian Catholic news agency, that he is innocent but he would return to the United States to stand trial if called to do so.
Father Joseph Palanivel Jeyapaul left Minnesota for a family emergency one year into what was to have been a three-year assignment in the Diocese of Crookston. Shortly after he left, allegations of sexual abuse arose, were investigated by the diocese and his permission to serve in the diocese was revoked. He has never returned.
A Roseau County, Minn., prosecutor confirmed to The Associated Press April 5 that she has been trying to extradite Father Jeyapaul from the Diocese of Ootacamund in southern India to face two counts of criminal sexual conduct stemming from allegations of sexual assault by a girl who was 14 and 15 at the time of the events. Apparently no charges have been filed related to the alleged incident involving the second girl, who was 16 at the time.
...A response from Archbishop Angelo Amato, then secretary of the doctrinal congregation, dated May 2006, said that Father Jeyapaul's bishop in Ootacamund had been contacted "with the request that (his) priestly life be monitored so that he does not constitute a risk to minors and does not create scandal among the faithful."
...In a statement to AP, California attorney Jeffrey Lena, who represents the Vatican in an assortment of cases, said the Vatican has cooperated with Minnesota law enforcement authorities, providing Father Jeyapaul's address. He said the Vatican had also recommended he be laicized, or removed from the priesthood, because it believed the charges were serious enough, but that Bishop Amalraj had refused.
The red-highlighted sections should demonstrate that Atty. Anderson is ....ahhhh.......selectively releasing documents, to put it kindly. Surprised?? I'm not.
The most important point is this: the only Bishop immediately and fully responsible for ANY action taken against Fr. Jeyapaul is the Bishop in India, Amalraj. Crookston Diocese does not have the authority to prosecute, just as an Elm Grove cop cannot make a traffic-stop for an offense committed in Milwaukee. It's jurisdictional.
Second, note that the Vatican DID recommend "de-frocking" for the priest, but his Bishop, who HAS the authority to proceed, has refused to do so.
Did I mention that the territorial Bishop is immediately and fully responsible for taking actions in these cases?
