Cardinal Pell: No state funeral in Victoria due to victim distress
The former Vatican treasurer died on Tuesday aged 81.
He is Australia's highest ranking Catholic, and the most senior clergyman ever jailed for child sex offences, Qazet.az reports.
State funerals are frequently offered to notable public figures in Australia.
But the premier of Victoria - where Cardinal Pell was born and spent about half his career - said no such funeral would take place there.
