Belgian bishop abused nephew for eight years, says priest

Bishop Roger Vangheluwe, who resigned in April after he admitted sexually abusing a minor, molested the boy-- his nephew-- over a period of eight years, according to Father Rik Devillé, a priest who said he told Cardinal Godfried Danneels about the abuse in 1996. “Stop making unfounded public accusations against the Church and its functionaries if you don’t have proof,” the cardinal responded in a letter.
