Cardinal George Pell dies at age 81 following surgery complications


After suffering complications from a hip replacement surgery, Cardinal George Pell died at age 81.

Cardinal George Pell was Australia’s former highest ranking Catholic with the position of financial controller of the Vatican.

Pell was held in Victoria’s Barwon Prison in April 2020 after being accused of assaulting two choirboys at a Melbourne Cathedral in the 1990’s.

The religious man was the most senior Catholic in the world to have been found guilty of historical child sexual abuse before his convictions were disproved in a two year legal battle.
