Former Pope Benedict XVI failed to act on four cases of child abuse that occured when he was the archbishop of Munich between 1977-82, a report published in Germany on Thursday claimed.

Josef Ratzinger was made aware of mistreatment but took no action against the priests, who remained active in their roles, the report by a Germany law firm said. EFE
