Cardinals involved in 'Vatileaks' scandal?

Catholic World News - June 06, 2012

Paolo Gabriele, the Pope’s valet, who has been charged with stealing confidential papal documents, has implicated two cardinals in the “Vatileaks” scandal, according to a report in London’s Daily Telegraph.

The Daily Telegraph story did not identify the cardinals allegedly involved, and did not cite evidence to substantiate the report. The Telegraph, like other British newspapers, has a history of publishing sensational reports about Vatican affairs.

A Vatican prosecutor began questioning Gabriele in depth this week about his involvement in the release of confidential Vatican documents. Immediately after the valet’s arrest, journalists began questioning whether Gabriele was working with more influential figures at the Vatican. But to date no other names have been mentioned in connection with the leaks. Father Federico Lombardi, the director of the Vatican press office, has specifically denied that any cardinals are under suspicion.
