Anglican investigator found 'more than enough' evidence to revoke Peter Hollingworth's holy orders

From Australia-

The former director of professional standards for the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne last year told a survivor of sexual abuse that he believed there was enough publicly available evidence to revoke Peter Hollingworth's bishop's orders.

Vincent Lucas was the director of professional standards at Kooyoora Ltd between July 2017 and June 2018.

In October last year, he told a survivor: "I just don't understand why [Archbishop] Philip Freier … hasn't just said, 'That's enough, you can't be in Holy Orders'."

Dr Hollingworth was forced to resign as governor-general in 2003 after a series of scandals over his handling of sexual abuse allegations against priests and teaching staff while he was the archbishop of Brisbane in the 1990s.
