This is part two of Inq's series on George Pell and the Catholic Church. Read part one here.

Witness J, the central witness in the case against George Pell, was 32 years old and working behind the bar of a Melbourne RSL club when ABC reporter Louise Milligan found him.

That was in 2016. Witness J had already given his statement to Victorian police. Milligan was deep into her book Cardinal, chronicling the rise and fall of George Pell.
