The Apostolic Signatura, the Church's highest court, acquitted Father Hermann Geissler on May 15 of "abuse" allegations, reports herder.de.
The lies against Geissler were mainly spread by Doris Wagner, a former sister who belonged to the same religious group as Geissler and who had an affair with one priest and is now married to an ex-priest. Wagner became a star of the gullible and anti-Catholic media.
Geissler was forced to quit his work at the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith due to the false accusation. He collaborated with the most recent investigation in order to clear his name.
