Bishop resigns after Vatican probe into cash and mistress claims

Pope Francis on Wednesday accepted the resignation of Bishop Hubertus Leteng of Indonesia's Ruteng diocese, after the Vatican dispatched an investigator to look into allegations that he had had a mistress and skimmed over 100,000 euros ($118,000) from church funds.

Following Leteng's departure, Bishop Sylvester San of Denpasar will serve as apostolic administrator of Ruteng until a bishop is named. Vatican took did this issue very seriously, and sent an internal investigation team to Indonesia which found that Yeteng had a secret mistress, and has also taken $94,000 from the Indonesian bishops' conference and $30,000 from his own diocese without accounting for it.

According to Ucanews, the bishop said the money financed the education of a poor youth, though he declined to provide details.

The Vatican didn't address the scandal or explain why Leteng was retiring early.

Leteng's resignation is the latest in a handful of cases of the Vatican persuading-or in some cases strong-arming-bishops accused of wrongdoing to step down.

Ucanews reported that Leteng has denied the claims against him, and called the allegations of having a relationship with a woman, "slanderous". A decision in that case is expected soon.
