OTTAWA -- A retired Vatican official wanted on sex abuse charges in eastern Ontario was returned to Pembroke, Ont., Wednesday to face them.

Msgr. Bernard Prince, 71, arrived in Montreal Tuesday from Rome, where he had been living, said Sgt. Kristine Rae-Cholette, an Ontario Provincial Police spokeswoman.

"He was arrested by Customs and Immigration, they notified us that he was in custody, we went today to pick him up,'' Rae-Cholette said.

Prince is expected to appear in Pembroke court on Thursday for a bail hearing.
