Decision Monday on prosecution of Gabriele in Vatileaks case

August 08, 2012

The Vatican will announce on August 13 whether Paolo Gabriele, the Pope's valet, will face trial for stealing confidential papal documents.

Gabriele's lawyer has already conceded that it is unlikely his client will be cleared of all charges. Gabriele has insisted that he acted alone, and his motive was to help Pope Benedict XVI. His lawyer has said that a fuller explanation would emerge at his trial.
