The chairman of the German Bishops' Conference, Bishop Georg Bätzing, sees no positive progress in the Archdiocese of Cologne even after months of public criticism. "The conflict management, the crisis management has been bad and it is still bad in Cologne," said Bätzing on Wednesday in the ZDF "Morgenmagazin". Bätzing described the processing of the abuse scandal in the archbishopric led by Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki as "a disaster".

Woelki is also being criticized for keeping under lock and key an opinion from a Munich law firm that was announced a year ago.
