Pope Benedict gets no respite from Vatileaks scandal as more confidential documents leaked
Vatican City, June 4 (ANI): Pope Benedict XVI got no relief from the ongoing Vatileaks scandal, which has engulfed his papacy, after recently emerged documents showed that his butler was not the only person in possession of confidential correspondence indicating a Vatican in disarray.
Paolo Gabriele was recently arrested on suspicion of disclosing dozens of embarrassing letters alleging corruption and nepotism at the Holy See.
Gabriele is believed to be one of up to 20 whistleblowers trying to oust Benedict's powerful prime minister, secretary of state Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, who has been accused of incompetence, covering up graft, and packing key Vatican posts with supporters.
On Sunday, La Repubblica published newly leaked Vatican correspondence with an anonymous covering note stating the whistleblowers still at large will not stop until Bertone, and the pope's personal secretary Georg Ganswein, are removed, The Guardian reports.
Gabriele has spent a week under guard in a 'secure room' and will be interrogated early this week.
According to the paper, his lawyers are hinting he might reveal the names.
Meanwhile, letters published so far have accused Bertone of exiling a priest to a US post after he exposed graft at the Vatican and insinuate the cardinal was behind a gay whispering campaign against a newspaper editor. (ANI)
