'Vatileaks' journalist refused credentials for conclave

Catholic World News - March 11, 2013

The Italian journalist who published a book of confidential papal documents has been refused press credentials to cover the papal conclave that opens March 12.

Gianluigi Nuzzi rattled the Vatican last year with his book His Holiness: The Secret Papers of Benedict XVI, which contained dozens of confidential documents. Paolo Gabriele, the former valet to Pope Benedict XVI, was eventually convicted by a Vatican tribunal for supplying Nuzzi with the documents--although the Italian journalist still says that he had other sources as well. The Vatican has consistently condemned the theft and publication of the documents as a criminal act.
