Chilean victim of sexual abuse demands thorough Vatican investigation


ROME (Reuters) - A Chilean victim of clerical sexual abuse who is the key witness in the case of a bishop accused of covering it up says a Vatican investigation must be rigorous and fair if the church is to salvage its reputation on the issue.

In a telephone interview with Reuters from his home in the United States on Thursday night, Juan Carlos Cruz said Pope Francis had "set the clock back years and years" with his recent comments casting doubt on the credibility of victims of abuse.
