The former Vatican treasurer was found guilty last December of abusing two boys while as Bishop of Melbourne in the late 1990s. He is serving a six-year jail term. The Vatican spokesman Matteo Bruni said the Cardinal has a right to another appeal. The Holy See acknowledges the court's decision to dismiss Cardinal Pell's appeal.
