Religious Figure
    (July 15, 1948-August 27, 2015)
    Born in Nowy Targ, Poland
    Titular archbishop of Slebte (2000-14)
    Papal nuncio to Bolivia (1999-2002), Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan (2002-08) and the Dominican Republic (2008-13)
    The Vatican originally claimed his recall from the Dominican Republic was 'routine.'
    The Vatican then explained it was the result of long-running dispute between Weslowski and Roberto Gonzalez Nieves, the Archbishop of San Juan, over Gonzalez's support for Puerto Rican independence.
    Finally, the Vatican admitted he was being investigated for child abuse.
    Dominican authorities reported that he had paid at least six minors to watch them masturbate and to record them with his mobile phone.
    Child porn was discovered on his computer.
    He was the highest-ranking church official charged in the Catholic Church's pedophilia scandal.
    His Vatican trial for possessing child porn was delayed because of his poor health (July 11, 2015).
    He died before the trial could re-start.
    A canonical trial resulted in his being defrocked as a priest (June 27, 2014).
    The Holy See had indicated that it would be willing to extradite him to the Dominican Republic after his Vatican trial.
    The decision to put him on trial in the Vatican was considered evidence of Pope Francis's tougher approach in dealing with the child abuse scandal.
