“Vatileaks” apparently to continue

The whistleblowers behind the “Vatileaks” scandal are still at large and will not stop until Pope Benedict’s Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, and his personal assistant, Mgr Georg Gänswein, are forced out of their posts, according to the Italian daily La Repubblica.

La Repubblica on Sunday published a blacked-out memo signed by Mgr Gänswein it received from someone who claimed to have hundreds more documents.

The Pope’s butler, Paolo Gabriele, who was arrested last week, is thought to be one of up to 20 whistleblowers leaking confidential documents that allege corruption and nepotism at the highest levels within the Holy See.

Gianluigi Nuzzi, whose book Sua Santitia -“His Holiness” – which contains a host of leaks alleging corruption and infighting within the Vatican, told the Sunday Times his sources are “deeply Catholic believers who have decided to violate their obligation of secrecy to expose shady doings.”
