Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. has corrected his statement on the abuse report of the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising. Contrary to what was initially claimed, he took part in a meeting in 1980 as archbishop of Munich and Freising at which a priest was discussed who had repeatedly been conspicuous for the sexual abuse of children. This was announced by Benedikt’s private secretary, Georg Gänswein, in a press release. That priest was later reinstated as a pastor in Bavaria.
