Pope meets with cardinals in Vatileaks probe

Catholic World News - July 27, 2012

Pope Benedict XVI met on July 26 with commission of three cardinals set up to investigate the “Vatileaks” scandal.

The cardinals presented their conclusions to the Pope, the Vatican said. The substance of those conclusions was not disclosed.

A short Vatican statement, released after the meeting, said that the Pope thanked the cardinals for their work, and encouraged Vatican magistrates to “proceed expeditiously” with their criminal investigation.

Two Vatican magistrates participated in the meeting, as did Domenico Giani, the director of the Vatican gendarmerie; and Gregory Burke, the newly appointed public-relations consultant to the Secretariat of State.

Pope Benedict had asked the commission—chaired by Cardinal Julian Herranz, and also including Cardinals Jozef Tomko and Salvatore De Giorgi—to probe the sources of the leaks of confidential Vatican documents. To date the Vatican has not offered any public information about the investigation, and the Vatican press office has discouraged speculation about which Vatican officials, if any, may be under suspicion.
