Vatican not planning to investigate source of leaked documents?

Catholic World News - March 16, 2012

Marco Tosatti of Vatican Insider reports that the Vatican has not yet begun a serious investigation into the source(s) of leaked documents, and no real investigation is planned.

Archbishop Giovanni Beccui, who as sostituto or deputy secretary of state is responsible for the bulk of the paperwork flowing through the Vatican, has denied the accuracy of the report, saying that his office will seek to identify the officials responsible for the leaks. Vatican journalists believe that the confidential documents have been made available to the media by officials within the Secretariat of State.

The Vatican Insider article makes the hyperbolic assertion that the “VatiLeaks” release of several confidential documents has been “a scandal of unprecedented proportions in the history of the Vatican.” In fact, while the leaked documents have caused comment about the evident conflicts and inefficiencies within the Secretariat of State, the documents have not exposed any serious scandal at the Vatican.
