The Vatican has ordered an investigation into the former archbishop of Gdansk due to suspected negligence over allegations of sexual abuse, a month after the pope accepted the resignation of a bishop accused of covering up sexually abusive priests.

The Vatican embassy in Warsaw said in a statement that local church officials will look into the allegations against Archbishop Leszek Slawoj Glodz, who retired in August.

The embassy said the Warsaw archbishop will investigate Glodz for “reported neglect” that led to the alleged “detriment of minors by some clergy in the archdiocese of Gdansk”.

Last year, Gdansk priests accused Glodz of covering up cases of sexual abuse. At the time, Glodz denied any wrongdoing. Efforts to contact Glodz for comment were unsuccessful, and the Gdansk curia said it has no spokesman and the whereabouts of the former archbishop are unknown.

In May, Polish church leaders referred Janiak to the Vatican for trial in reaction to a film by brothers Tomasz and Marek Sekielski that shows that Janiak allegedly failed to appear before priests who were known to have abused children. Janiak also denied any wrongdoing.

The Sekielski brothers made another film that implies that well-known pedophiles were deliberately transferred between parishes. The film had over 23 million views on YouTube.
