Bishop Christopher Saunders, who has overseen the vast Diocese of Broome for 25 years, remains voluntarily stood aside amidst an ongoing WA Police investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct.
No charges have been laid and Bishop Saunders has previously denied all accusations of inappropriate behaviour.
In an email response to questions from the ABC, Bishop Saunders’ lawyer Seamus Rafferty said it would be inappropriate for the Bishop to make any public statement, given the active investigation.
