Inquiries on child abuse in Australia

Cardinal George Pell on Wednesday made his first court appearence in Australia due to allegations of sex abuse in the catholic church

It is an important case as pell occupies the number 3 position in the Vatican and is Australia's highest ranking catholic

The whole case started in 2013, when a state government inquiry in Australia uncovered instances of child abuse in the Ballarat diocese

The Australian government created a royal commission to investigate the case

The commission heard testimony from various victims and sentenced some of the involved priests to prison terms
