French priest commits suicide in church after being accused of sexual assault of a young woman.

On Tuesday, Jean-Baptiste Sebe, a 38-year old French priest in a northern French town killed himself after being accused of sexually molesting a young woman.

A police source reported based on allegations made by the victim’sm’s mother, that her grown-up daughter had been a victim of “indecent behaviour and sexual assault”.

However the report was initially made to the archbishop of north fo Rouen and “police were not notified prior to the suicide,” the source added, stressing that investigators remained “very cautious at this stage.”

Prosecutor Etienne Thieffry confirmed that an investigation was underway into “the exact reasons for the suicide” at the Saint-Jean XXIII church.

“At this point, no complaint has been filed,” Thieffry said.

A spokesman for the Rouen diocese, Eric de la Bourdonnaye, told AFP he could “neither confirm nor deny these reports.”

The Catholic Church has been shaken by a string of paedophile scandals over the past 25 years.

It was rocked in August by a devastating US report on child sex abuse which accused more than 300 “predator” priests of abusing more than 1,000 minors over seven decades in the state of Pennsylvania.

The most senior French Catholic cleric to be caught up in a scandal is Cardinal Philippe Barbarin, who is to go on trial in January for allegedly covering up for a priest accused of abusing boy scouts in the Lyon area in the 1980s.
