Response to CPS Decision

posted on 20 July 2003
Commenting on the story in the Sunday Telegraph today, 'Cardinal is cleared over claims of child abuse cover up', (Sunday 20th July), a spokesperson for Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor said:

I have spoken briefly to the Cardinal, who is on his way to Lourdes as part of the annual Diocesan Pilgrimage. He was, of course, pleased to hear this confirmation from the CPS.

' Sussex Police informed us on Saturday afternoon of their decision.

' I am happy to confirm that Sussex Police did not, at any stage, contact the Cardinal in connection with their investigation into the original claims.'
The decision from the CPS this week follows the apology from the News of the World last Sunday regarding allegations against Cardinal Cormac and Bishop Howard Tripp.
