Melissa Davey - The Case of George Pell

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 3:10 pm on 10 August 2020

Every hearing, every trial, mistrial, retrial, every appeal against charges that Australian Cardinal George Pell sexually abused two 13 year old boys, Melissa Davey was there. As the Guardian Australia Melbourne bureau chief, she watched as the highest ranking Catholic leader was convicted only to have the conviction overturned.  Davey  looks at the broader issues of culture wars, clergy abuse and the fallout from The Case of George Pell.
