Pope Francis has expelled a Chilean priest over allegations of child sexual abuse. Reverend Cristián Precht had previously been under investigation and was suspended for five years in 2012. The announcement of Precht’s expulsion comes as the Chilean church has been rocked by allegations of widespread sexual abuse and cover-up. In May, every bishop in Chile offered their resignation in response to the growing scandal.
