Archbishop Michel Aupetit said this week that he is preparing to sue a French magazine for defamation.
In an interview with the newspaper Le Parisien published on Dec. 13, the archbishop said that his lawyer was preparing to take action against Paris Match after it published images of the archbishop taken with a telephoto lens.
The former archbishop of Paris also suggested in the interview that he was the victim of a “cabal,” but said he couldn’t provide proof.
The Paris Match report, headlined “Mgr. Aupetit, lost for love” and published Dec. 8, showed Aupetit walking through a forest near Paris with the Belgian theologian Laetitia Calmeyn.
