In the canon law of the Catholic Church, the loss of the clerical state is the removal of a bishop, priest or deacon from the status of being a member of the clergy.

This was reported by the Metropolitan Curia tonight, after having received confinement from Rome in previous days.

Against Víquez Lizano 9 canonical complaints were filed for alleged sexual abuse of altar servers, in addition to a criminal complaint for the alleged qualified violation against a minor.
