Monseigneur Roger Vangheluwe

Translated from RTL TV in the Netherlands:

Bishop quits after sex scandal

Bishop Roger Vangheluwe of Bruges has resigned after it appears that he was involved in a sex case. He has resigned because of “serious offenses”.

What exactly happened is still unknown. This afternoon there will be a press conference in Brussels, where Archbishop André Léonard will explain the reason for the dismissal.

Relative

Vangheluwe has been Bishop of Bruges for more than 25 years, making him the most experienced Bishop of Belgium. A relative made the case public by informing a news agency.
