Man [of God] at work in Austria

30 Mar 2001


VIENNA - A warrant has been issued for a former priest who allegedly disappeared with more than $1 million worth of donations he said would go to help finance repairs to a church in Poland, police said.

They identified the suspect as Msg. Viktor Dudzinski, 71, who last worked as a priest in the town of Aggsbach-Markt, about 35 miles west of Vienna before recently retiring. They said he is suspected of disappearing with nearly $1.5 million of donations collected over 10 years that he said would go toward repairing the cathedral in Lodz, a city in central Poland. The Austria Press Agency said police believed that the clergyman, who disappeared in Sept., was likely to have gone to relatives in Poland, or in Italy.
