Recently a priest was arrested by the Vanuatu Police Force for sexual offences. This crime has prompted the Vanuatu Christian Council Chairman Bishop Jean Bosco to make a clear statement about pastors who commit these crimes.


The Catholic Bishop explains, “A lot of priests are in prison because of that (sexual related crimes) which is good, if they do that then they deserve to be in prison.”


The Chairman of the Christian Council adds that the Council has a zero tolerance for priests who break the law and are currently discussing disciplinary measures that VCC will impose upon them.
