Mexico’s nuncio offers his email address for abuse reports

Mexico City, Mexico, Dec 10, 2019 / 07:30 pm (CNA).- The apostolic nuncio in Mexico, Archbishop Franco Coppola, has said that anyone who wants to report sexual abuse by the country’s clergy is free to email him, and he will try to help.

Speaking with ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish language news partner,  Coppola explained that “many times the people who have appealed here were victims who hadn’t been listened to by those responsible for the Church and they come to the nunciature motivated by the commitment that Pope Francis has clearly expressed in favor of the victims.”

Coppola said the doors of his office are open to receive complaints and accompany victims “in their search for justice.”

He is all about us, and this seems to please us greatly.
