Previous investigation of complaint against Aysén priest was accredited

Aysén's Apostolic Vicariate concluded the previous investigation into the accusations against the priest Porfirio Díaz Reyes and concluded that there were elements that proved that the facts accused of alleged sexual harassment by a minor were reasonable.

For this reason, he was sent to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Vatican Beliefs, an organization that first investigated the most serious complaints affecting the priests of the Catholic Church.

Unless the canonical process is completed, the priest Díaz will continue with the precautionary measures imposed on him last June, namely the suspension of religious offices and the people's exercise of the ministry.

In a statement, "The Apostolic Vicariate of Aysén is deeply saddened by this fact and will continue to depend on the search for truth, the affection of the affected and their commitment to life and the defense of human dignity." Said.
