Court declines request it investigate Vatican leaders over abuse issues

 | 

The International Criminal Court declined a request from victims of clergy sexual abuse to investigate Vatican officials and their responsibility for the abuse of children by Catholic priests around the world.

In a two-page letter May 31, the court told the New York-based Center for Constitutional Rights, which represented the victims, that the offenses alleged in the survivor's petition "do not appear to fall within the jurisdiction of the court."
