'Vatileaks' report will remain secret

Catholic World News - February 25, 2013

The Vatican has announced that an in-depth report on the “Vatileaks” scandal, which was submitted in confidence to Pope Benedict XVI, will remain secret, with only the new Pope given access to the report.

Late last week, an Italian journalist reported that the three cardinals who prepared the report would brief the entire College of Cardinals on their findings. But the Vatican contradicted that report, announcing on February 25 that the report “will be made available exclusively to the new Pontiff.”

Pope Benedict met on February 25 with the three prelates who had prepared the report: Cardinals Julian Herranz, Jozef Tomko, and Salvatore De Giorgi. The cardinals had conducted their investigation under conditions of pontifical secrecy. The contents of their report have become a subject of speculative stories in the Italian press.
