'Vatileaks' defendant predicts guilty verdict, while insisting innocence

January 04, 2016

One of the “Vatileaks II” defendants has said that she expects to be convicted, despite her protestations of innocence.

”I am innocent but I will be found guilty,” predicts Francesca Immacolata Chaouqui, the flamboyant publicist who has been charged with participating in a conspiracy to steal and release confidential Vatican documents. “There is no chance that the Vatican court, after arresting me and setting in motion a trial… will simply say ‘we were wrong.’”

Chaouqui said that she expects to spend a year and a half in jail, and give birth while in prison. She said that she would also write a book during her confinement.
