Bishop misconduct charges proven

From Australia-

A special tribunal of the Anglican Church has found eight of nine conduct charges against a South Australian bishop were proven.

Parishioners in the Murray Diocese have been calling for Bishop Ross Davies' retirement since 2007, raising questions about the diocese's bank accounts and his handling of sex abuse allegations against a former archdeacon.

He resigned while on sick leave over the weekend, but the special tribunal went ahead in his absence in Adelaide this week, recommending on Wednesday that action be taken on eight of the claims against Davies under Anglican church law.
