Ex-priest and youth leader charged with perverting course of justice

Piotr Antonio Glas. (38550225)

A CATHOLIC priest and former youth leader facing ten counts of sexually abusing a child has been charged with attempting to interfere with a prosecution witness.

Piotr Antonio Glas (60) – who used to specialise in exorcisms – appeared in the Magistrate’s Court yesterday [8 JULY] to face one count of perverting the course of justice.

Mr Glas was previously charged with offences that are said to have happened while he was in ministry in 鶹 – eight counts of gross indecency with a child and two charges of indecent assault on a child.

The charges were deemed to be too serious for the Magistrate’s Court and have been sent to the Royal Court.

Mr Glas’s court appearance yesterday related to him contacting a third party and asking them to interfere with a prosecution witness.

Originally from Poland, Mr Glas is described on Wikipedia as a fundamentalist priest and former exorcist.

His LinkedIn shows that he has been a parish priest in Gosport, Hampshire, since 2008.

While in 鶹, he worked as a youth priest and as the priest for the “Catholic western parish”, which combined the two former parishes of St Bernadette and St Matthieu.

Mr Glas was released on bail on condition that he lives at a specified address in 鶹 and does not attempt to leave the Island. He is due to appear in the Royal Court on Friday 6 September.
