SYDNEY, 4 June (ANSA) – More than 10 Australian media outlets have been fined for violating a media blackout over the pedophilia lawsuit against powerful Cardinal George Pell imposed by the court in December 2018.
The former mayor of the Vatican Economy Secretariat was sentenced in the 1990s to six years in prison for allegedly misusing two altar servers, but in April 2020 the Supreme Court of Australia overturned this sentence.
Already on Friday (4), the Supreme Court of Victoria sentenced the press vehicles to a fine of Australian dollars 1.1 million, equivalent to R$4.3 million, for disrespecting an order that allowed the press to know about the trial against Pell. I was barred from speaking, so as not to impress the judges.
The vehicles would still have to pay 650,000 Australian dollars (R$2.5 million) in procedural costs. He had already pleaded guilty in a court settlement to avoid prosecution of individual journalists and editors.
Most of those fined are the newspapers and websites of two main media groups in Australia: tycoon Rupert Murdoch and Nine Entertainment-owned News Corp. According to the ruling, the publication of news about the Pell case during the sanctions period was “a clear and deliberate challenge to the authority of the Court”.
The vehicles of the press, in turn, claim to be censored by the courts. (ANSA).
