SINGAPORE - The Catholic Church has invited civil society activist Vincent Wijeysingha to lodge a complaint with its body that deals with misconduct in order to investigate his claim that a priest tried to molest him when he was a teenager.

It has also suggested that he make a police report.

The Catholic Archdiocese Professional Standards Office (PSO) oversees procedures dealing with specific allegations of misconduct against clergy, employees and lay volunteers of the Catholic Church.

The Archbishop's office on Saturday said it is standard procedure for the PSO to get in touch with anyone who makes an allegation against the Church.
