Bishop Czeslaw Kozon of Copenhagen allowed a priest to continue in ministry despite a 2005 conviction on child pornography charges, according to The Copenhagen Post. The priest, who was convicted of downloading and paying for 38 movies, was fined 6,000 kroner ($983 under the current exchange rate).
The newspaper also reported that after Bishop Kozon recently suspended the priest, he did not tell the parish council about the conviction.
Copenhagen is the nation’s sole diocese; only 0.6% of the nation’s 5.4 million people are Catholic.
