Archbishop Mark Coleridge of Brisbane is being investigated by his former archdiocese over his alleged handling of information on child sex abuse given him by a woman during a 2006 meeting.
As president of the Australian bishops' conference, Coleridge attended the Feb. 21-24 Vatican summit on the protection of minors in the Church.
Guardian Australia reported Feb. 25 that "the complaint against Coleridge relates to a 2006 meeting with a Canberra woman who had offered information about child sexual abuse."
The woman was relating information about abuse in the Archdiocese of Canberra-Goulburn. Coleridge was appointed Archbishop of Canberra-Goulburn in June of that year, and was installed Aug. 17.
