Bishop Franco Mulakkal acquitted of all charges

Kerala nun rape caseKerala nun caseThe accused Bishop Franco Mulakkal (Bishop Franco Mulakkal) was found not guilty. There have been different reactions from different sections of the society regarding this decision. Supporters of the nuns called it unjust and unacceptable, while bishops and those in the Catholic Church saw it as a victory for truth. The verdict was pronounced in the case late on Friday evening.

According to the court, the victim treated Bishop as a father figure and did not expect him to sexually abuse her. The court observed that the defense argued that as a nun she was forced to travel with the bishop. In such a situation, there is not enough evidence to prove that there was no friendly relationship between the two. It is worth noting here that one of the witnesses present with the nun and the bishop said that the nun behaved quite normally around the bishop.

The court also took note of these things

According to the India Today report, the prosecution also talked about the bad character of the accused bishop. However, the court said that the bad character of the accused is not related to the case. Apart from this, the arguments given by the prosecution regarding the leaving of the group by the 18 nuns after the charge of the accused were also examined. According to the court, there is no evidence that the nun had left the group because of the bishop. A television interview also played a key role in concluding an argument that the accused had been in the convent several times with the intention of molesting the nun.

However, this could not be proved, as the witness Sister Anupama said that the bishop’s stay in the convent cannot be said to be unusual. This decision also points to factions and fights in the church. The defense managed to point out that a section of the clergy was working against the accused. The court observed in several cases whether the delay in registering the case and the delay in registering the FIR can be satisfactorily explained. However, the prosecution also failed to understand this. According to Supreme Court lawyer Kaliswaram Raj, the judgment was well delivered in the legal sense.

These things were also taken care of in the decisions

The court, while discussing the main points in the concluding part, explained why Bishop Franco Mulakkal was acquitted. The court observed the exaggerated presentation of facts by the victim and said that she tried to hide the facts. The court further observed that the victim was influenced by the influence of others who had vested interests in the case. According to the court, there appears to be fighting, rivalry and desire for power between the victim and her fellow nuns. It turns out that if the demand for a separate area under Bihar had been accepted through discussion, the matter would have been resolved. The verdict ends with the bishop being declared not guilty. The court then said that when it is not possible to separate the truth from the untruth, the only option is to destroy the evidence.
