It said: “Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, the retired Archbishop of Genoa, visited Poland on June 17-26 at the request of the Holy See.” “The purpose was to verify the indicated, also publicly, negligence of Cardinal Stanisław Dziwisz during his term as metropolitan archbishop of Kraków (2005-2016).” “Cardinal Bagnasco familiarized himself with the documents and held a number of meetings, and will present an account of the visit to the Holy See.” Dziwisz, 82, served as personal secretary to John Paul II until the Polish pope’s death in 2005.
