Vatileaks trial to open September 29

Catholic World News - September 17, 2012

The trial of “Vatileaks” suspects Paolo Gabriele and Glaudio Sciarpelletti will begin September 29, the Vatican has announced.

Gabriele, the former valet to Pope Benedict XVI, has been charged with stealing confidential papal documents. Sciarpelletti, a computer analyst at the Vatican Secretariat of State, was indicted on August 13 for “aiding and abetting” the leaks.

The trial will be held in the audience hall of the Vatican city-state tribunal, announced Giuseppe della Torre, the tribunal’s president. Reporters will be allowed to observe at least some portions of the proceedings, but cameras will not be allowed into the courtroom.
