(Vatican Radio) The former Apostolic Nuncio to the Dominican Republic, Józef Wesołowski, who was awaiting trial on charges of sexually abusing minors and possession of paedophile material, died inside the Vatican in the early hours of Friday (28th August).
A communique released by the Vatican said that initial investigations indicate that he died of natural causes.
The Promoter of Justice ordered an autopsy to be performed on Friday and the results will be communicated as soon as possible.
According to the note, the Holy Father has been informed of the death.
Wesołowski's trial in the Vatican was suspended in July after he was hospitalized in intensive care. He had earlier been defrocked and placed under house arrest.
