Cardinal George Pell has said he would take leave from his senior Vatican post to return to Australia to face sex abuse charges, which he said he totally rejected.

Cardinal Pell, 76, who is based in the Vatican, is considered the third-ranking official in the Holy See.

He was accused of moving one notorious paedophile priest – Gerald Ridsdale – around parishes rather than reporting him, and of attempting to bribe one of the victims to keep quiet.

He denied any wrongdoing but said he could have done more to investigate claims of abuse.
