American priest wanted for sexual abuse now in BI custody

American priest wanted for sexual abuse now in BI custody

The case is being run by the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Southern District of OH - where Hendricks was previously based.

"(There will be) no special treatment for him", the BI official added.

Predicting a meeting between the boy's parents and the local bishop, Hendricks allegedly said that a key question would likely be if the family wants to press charges.

Sandoval said immigration officials received information from United States authorities about Hendricks' activities.

The church suspended Hendricks from his priestly duties after opening a formal inquiry more than a month ago, said Father John Estina of the Catholic diocese in Biliran, adding that it had cooperated with civil authorities.

"This is our priority, to kick out people like this because they are preying on our children", she told AFP.

Calling for anyone with information about Hendricks to contact the HIS office in Cincinnati, Francis repeatedly recited the office's phone number: (513) 246-1461.

There was no immediate reaction from the U.S. Embassy, Philippine Catholic Church officials or Hendricks, who was flown to Manila and detained in an immigration cell.

Sandoval called the case "both shocking and appalling".

We are also working diligently to make the faithful aware of Fr. Hendrick's arrest and learn of any potential interaction he may have had with anyone locally.

He added there's reason to believe others have been abused by Hendricks, whose travel records show he returns to the USA for several months each year.

The U.S. Embassy, which did not immediately react to the news of the arrest, may revoke Hendricks' passport in a bid to help Philippine authorities deport him. The priest would often pass through Los Angeles before visiting OH for months at a time, he said.

Although not a priest of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, Fr. Hendricks is listed on our website as a Catholic missionary serving in Asia.

Glassman said federal investigators are trying to ascertain the relationship between Hendricks and the archdiocese. The detention of Meng Wanzhou, Huawei's chief financial officer, comes after American authorities reportedly launched an investigation into suspected Iran sanctions by Huawei, which was already under scrutiny by USA intelligence officials who deemed the company a national security threat.

The abuse of children or any vulnerable person is abhorrent and needs to be prosecuted. "We can catch the offenders, and we will catch the offenders".
