Slovenian Jesuit artist, theologian nun abuse timed out

But bans on confession, spiritual exercises remain for Rupnik

(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 5 - Alleged sexual abuse of nuns by a Slovenian Jesuit priest, artist and theologian has timed out and therefore no criminal action will be taken against him, the Vatican's sex abuse department has said, according to a statement from the Jesuits on Monday.
    Complaints about Father Marko Rupnik were made in 2021 but the alleged offences are covered by the statute of limitations, said the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith.
    The dicastery "found that the events in question were to be considered timed out and it therefore shelved the case, at the beginning of October of this year," said the statement from the Company of Jesus.
    However, some precautionary measures remain in place with regard to Rupnik, including a ban on confessing people or accompanying spiritual exercises. (ANSA).
