FILE - In this May 5, 2014 file photo Archbishop Silvano M. Tomasi, Apostolic Nuncio, Permanent Observer of the Holy See (Vatican) to the Office of the United Nations in Geneva, delivers his statement during the UN torture committee hearing on the Vatican, at the headquarters of the office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in the Palais Wilson, in Geneva, Switzerland. The UN committee says Friday, May 23, 2014, the Vatican has effective control over bishops and priests around the world who must comply with a U.N. anti-torture treaty, a finding that could expose the Catholic Church to new lawsuits by victims of priestly sex abuse. The committee has repeatedly said rape and sexual violence can be considered torture cases, which in much of the world don’t carry statutes of limitations.
