Papal nuncio Prague move

 

Papal nuncio Archbishop Giuseppe Leanza is to shortly take up a posting in Prague, the Czech embassy has confirmed.

Archbishop Leanza, who has been at the centre of the fallout from the Cloyne report, was due to finish his posting in Ireland this summer. He was appointed papal nuncio to Ireland in February 2008, and arrived in Dublin that April. The Czech embassy in Dublin confirmed yesterday that diplomatic consent for his posting to Prague has already been given by the Czech authorities.

It has not yet been confirmed exactly when Archbishop Leanza will move to Prague.
