Police raid on Cardinal was illegal

Operation Chalice: The documents seized from Archbishop Danneels should be excluded from the dossier

The Supreme Court has spoken definitively on Tuesday about the documents seized in June 2010 by the Brussels magistrate Wim De Troy from the Archbishop's Palace of Mechelen and from offices and the private residence of Cardinal Danneels. The highest court in the land ruled that the Brussels Court of Indictments in Brussels had reason to exclude these documents from the file because the searches were not legal.

The searches were carried out on 24 June 2010, as part of Operation Chalice, the judicial investigation by Brussels judge de Troy about sexual abuse within the Church and suspected maneuvers to suppress the facts on the part of the hierarchy.
