Vatican 'knew paedophile Argentine bishop who Pope Francis treated as his 'spiritual son' had taken naked selfies and performed sex acts in public'

The actions of an Argentinian bishop who allegedly sexually abused his Catholic students, took naked selfies and performed sex acts in public was known to the Vatican, it has emerged.

Pope Francis accepted Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta's resignation in August 2017, after priests in a remote northern Argentine diocese complained about his behaviour.

Other colleagues also reported allegations of abuses of power and sexual harassment of adult seminarians, said former vicar of the same parish Juan Jose Manzano.

The new reports undermine Vatican claims that allegations of sexual abuse were only made a few months ago.
