Vatican accused of Vatileaks cover-up

KATH.NET - Katholischer Nachrichtendienst

"Tagespost", the German Catholic newspaper has criticized recent media policy of the Vatican towards "Vatileaks": "If the Vatican lets with the approval of its spokesman such nonsense be placed into the world, it provokes the media itself to investigate"

The "Tagespost" (DT)criticises in a recent critique in the context of recent developments of "Vatileaks" the media policy of the Vatican and asks that the actual results of the investigations of the Vatican should be published. According to Guido Horst, the Rome correspondent of the newspaper, the Secretariat of State and the press office of the Pope are currently pursuing the strategy, "of closing the bag tightly." It should come as no surprise that "voices in and around the Vatican" fire topsy-turvey at the media. The popular theory of the Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi is that the butler had acted out of an "act of love" and was a single perpetrator and this was sharply criticized by Horst. If the Vatican lets with the approval of its spokesman such nonsense be placed into the world, it provokes the media itself to investigate. The Bild newspaper now reports that the Pope of Germans who had been betrayed by close associates." The KNA has published in this context the "relevant characteristics" of the suspects. One of the suspects is beyond doubt for Guido Horst Bishop Josef Clemens, the longtime private secretary of Cardinal Ratzinger. In the case of Clemens, this is a reasonable assumption, because he previously took every opportunity in discussions to criticise his "successor" at the side of Pope Benedict XVI- "if you wanted to hear this at the time or not." The Vatican correspondent then says in conclusion that it is not possible to dry up the rumour mill. "The solution is not a double denial" They now must make the promised "surprises" available to the public.
