The Vatican has declared it will not conduct any further investigation into sexual assault allegation against a Quebec Cardinal.

Cardinal Marc Ouellet

A woman has accused 78-year-old Cardinal Marc Ouellet of several incidents of sexual assault between 2008 and 2010. He was one of the church officials named in a class-action lawsuit formally filed this week in Quebec Superior Court.

Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni issued a statement that reads “Pope Francis declared that there are not sufficient elements to open a canonical investigation for sexual aggression by Cardinal Ouellet against F,” Bruni’s statement said.

Cardinal Ouellet is one of Canada’s most prominent Catholic cleric and sometimes mentioned as a potential pontiff.
