SPANISH bishops have expressed their ‘support’ for Sister Maria Gomez Valbuena, the nun at the centre of the stolen babies’ scandal.
Juan Antonio Martinez Camino claimed her convent was the victim of a ‘smear campaign.’ However he insisted the Church would ‘collaborate with the courts.’
Sister Maria – the first nun to be questioned as part of the investigation – refused to testify in court. The 87-year-old later issued a statement denying the accusations.
Meanwhile a second nun Juanja Alonso, 97, is also due to be questioned in the ongoing investigations.
