Pope’s Butler Indicted in Vatican Leak Case
A judge at the Vatican on Monday ordered the former butler of Pope Benedict XVI to stand trial on charges of taking and then leaking documents from the pope’s private apartment that raised allegations of corruption at the Vatican.
Mr. Gabriele, whose tasks included serving the pope’s meals and helping him don his heavy clerical robes, could be imprisoned for up to six years if he is convicted. The indictment said that he had acknowledged taking the documents.
Somehow I'm not surprised that instead of dealing with corruption, the church instead goes after the guy who revealed it. Typical christian reaction, shove it under the rug and toss the conciencious whistle-blowers into a hole where they can't cause anymore damage.
