Charles Scicluna, former Vatican chief prosecutor of clerical sexual abuse, waits Thursday, Jan. 16, 2014, in Geneva, Switzerland, for the start of questioning over clerical sexual abuse of children. The questioning took place at the headquarters of the office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, OHCHR, in Geneva. The Vatican came under blistering criticism from a U.N. committee Thursday for its handling of the global priest sex abuse scandal, facing its most intense public grilling ever over allegations that it protected pedophile priests at the expense of their victims.
