Spanish archbishop defends work completed on new residence

 | 

A Spanish archbishop reacted angrily to complaints by local clergy that he wasted money on a "luxurious residence" for himself in one of the country's most-deprived regions.

Archbishop Santiago Garcia Aracil of Merida-Badajoz said in a brief posting on the archdiocesan website that the work on the residence and the archdiocesan seminary was approved by an advisory council before it began.

"I reject these libelous and defamatory claims," Garcia wrote.
