Former archbishop probed over how disgraced priest John Mounford fled Adelaide in 1992

From Australia-

A former Anglican archbishop is at the centre of a police investigation into the handling of sexual abuse at one of Adelaide's most prestigious schools.

Ex-school chaplain John Mountford was sacked from St Peter’s College after admitting he sexually assaulted a Year 10 student in 1992, and the same day fled to Bali.

It would be another 12 years before he was eventually extradited from Thailand to face charges, but the case was dropped on the first day of the trial after the victim was deemed too mentally unwell to give evidence.

Mountford then again fled the country, this time to Libya, where he was later murdered in 2009.

His victim took his own life five years later.
