Italian consumer group presses for Mahony probe
Codacons calls on prosecutors to meet with victims experts07 March, 16:22
Last Friday, Codacons submitted a request to investigate Mahony if he went to Rome, which he did. Shortly before arriving, the retired archbishop of Los Angeles was summoned to answer questions under oath about a visiting Mexican priest who in 1987 is believed to have molested 26 children.
In its initial motion, Codacons said "we must bring to light whether there were any Italians who were victimized".
