According to the website anonymousmx.com (Anonymous Mexico), the catholic archdiocese in Mexico has absolved a priest of his crimes which include raping of young girls.
The priest identified as Jose Garcia Ataulfo, who is said to also be HIV positive, had earlier admitted to raping over 30 young girls between the ages of 5-10, who are from Oaxaca in southern Mexico.
According to the website, one of the victims’ mother tried to set up a meeting with Pope Francis in Rome, but was reportedly shut down by the vatican who sent her a letter saying the matter has already been closed.
They also claim only two of the victims came forward to denounce the acquittal. The priest is also said to be walking freely, as he hasn’t been charged with any criminal offence yet, maybe due to the influence of the catholic church in Mexico.
