Pope's valet to remain in Vatican holding cell
CWN - June 26, 2012
Paolo Gabriele, the valet to Pope Benedict XVI who was arrested on May 23 in connection with the leaks of confidential papal documents, will remain in a secure room inside the Vatican.
Gabriele has been questioned extensively about his role in the “Vatileaks” affair in two sessions with magistrates. Father Federico Lombardi, the director of the Vatican press office, said that no further questioning is currently scheduled.
Gabriele has asked to be placed under house arrest in his family’s apartment inside the Vatican grounds. But he is still being held in a secure suite, under minimal supervision.
