When the case against a Roman Catholic priest is called in Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador next month the number of charges against him will increase.

The provincial Crown’s office is waiting for information from Nova Scotia to make its way into this province’s court system before proceeding with the case against George Ansel Smith.

Smith, 74,has been charged with 62-sex-related offences that are alleged to have occurred in  six communities in this province from 1969 to 1989.

Smith wasn’t in Supreme Court in Corner Brook when his matter was called on Monday.

His arraignment will take place on June 4 at 10 a.m.
