Relatives of people who have accused Cardinal George Pell of historical sex offences are due to give evidence at a Melbourne court hearing.
Pell, 76, is facing a committal hearing at Melbourne Magistrates Court that will determine if he stands trial over multiple historical sex offences involving multiple complainants.
People related to the complainants, neither of whom can be named for legal reasons, are due to give evidence via video link on Friday.
The complainants have already given evidence in closed court, as required by law in sex offence cases.
The court has not released any details about the charges.
On Thursday, a witness told the court he believes Pell would not have been able to remove the ceremonial robes he was wearing on the day he is accused of committing a sex offence.
The parish staff member also said he does not believe the alleged incident occurred based on his knowledge of a church’s layout.
The defence has cross-examined several witnesses about their interactions with Pell at a swimming pool, cinema, and a lake in rural Victoria, and other locations.
Oh farther I have sinned many times.
To judge I don’t remember.
Lawyer it never happened your worship
Judges thoughts what the heck is going on here there are at least twenty people complaining one of them must be right.
Next case will leave for a future date .
