Diocese to stand plantiff in paedophile priest case

Father Roberto Mastro charged with raping 15 under-14s 2007-2010

(ANSA) - Catanzaro, April 10 - An Italian diocese said Thursday it would stand as plaintiff in the trial of a paedophile priest accused of sexually abusing 15 boys.
    Father Roberto Mastro, former parish priest at the small town of Belcastro in Calabria, is charged with raping the boys, all younger than 14, between 2007 and 2010.
    Prosecutors last week asked for Mastro's indictment.
    The diocese's request came at a preiminary hearing which will decide if the priest will go to trial.
