A priest has been stopped from exercising his duties and removed from his posts following sexual abuse allegations.

In a statement about alleged abuses committed by the priest, the Dominican Order said it had warned him several times and it took (unspecified) measures about him. But it also pointed out that claims against him were withdrawn several times.

The province said that through its actions it was not judging the priest  but taking action against any eventuality.

The province expressed its regret over the developments and said was ready to collaborate with the police so that all the truth would be known.
