Vatican court delivered a verdict in a case on leakage of secret information of the Holy See
Two Italian journalists, who published the secret financial documents of Vatican, were justified
A Vatican court delivered a verdict in a high profile case on leakage of secret information of the Holy See.
Two Italian journalists, who published the documents, were justified. The court found that they do not fall under the jurisdiction of Vatican, being a sovereign state in the downtown of Rome.
However, the court has convicted two media workers for the Holy See administration – Spanish prelate Angel Balda and his helpmate. They were found guilty in stealing secret documents and sentenced to 18 and 10 months in prison respectively.
The scandal rose in 2010 when two Italians published the books on allegedly large scale corruption and financial fraud in Vatican. The books contained financial documents of the Holy See. Eventually the investigators found the persons responsible for the leakage.
