Perth Anglican Archbishop 'seeking counsel' over his future

From Australia-

Archbishop Herft served as the Bishop of Newcastle between 1993 and 2005.

He admitted to the royal commission last month he had been told three times that the defrocked dean of Newcastle Graeme Lawrence had sexually abused children, yet failed to report the information to police.

Archbishop Herft told the commission he gave “incorrect” evidence when he testified previously that no one raised issues of concern with him about Mr Lawrence. In a post on his website, Archbishop Herft said he was conscious of the impact the hearings were having on the survivors of abuse.
