An Italian priest stole cash from nuns in order to pay for gay sex, police have said.
The priest, who has not been named, allegedly swiped money entrusted to him by a local convent in the northern province of Belluno.
He then reportedly used it to pay his young Moroccan lover for sex.
The two are believed to have had a ‘long-standing relationship’.
While the amount of money the priest is accused of stealing has not yet been revealed, the amount he forked out could be thousands of euros.
