Child abuse bishop hides at nun's order

Norwegian media report former bishop Georg Mueller has been hiding at a convent in Rome since news broke that he admitted to child abuse. Trondheim daily Adresseavisen on Sunday published a picture of a smiling Mueller it says was taken shortly after the 58-year-old left the side exit of an unspecified nun’s order in Rome.

Oslo Bishop Bernt Eidsvig told the newspaper he knew Mueller was going to Rome at some point because “I believe he has something unsettled with the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, but I can’t confirm that.”
