Vatican: Statement on the Cardinal’s Commission of Inquiry report
(Vatican Radio) The following statement was issued Monday morning by the Holy See
Press Office regarding the Cardinals' Commission of Inquiry into the Vatileaks scandal:
Holy Father this morning received in audience Cardinals Julián Herranz, Jozef Tomko
and Salvatore De Giorgi, from the Cardinal’s Commission of Inquiry into the leaking
of confidential information. They were accompanied by the Commission Secretary, Fr.
Luigi Martignani, O.F.M. Cap
At the conclusion of their mission His Holiness
wished to thank them for their fruitful work, expressing satisfaction for the results
of the investigation. In fact, their work made it possible to detect, given the limitations
and imperfections of the human component of each institution, the generosity, honesty
and dedication of those who work in the Holy See at the service of the mission entrusted
by Christ to the Roman Pontiff.
The Holy Father has decided that the facts
of this investigation, the contents of which are known only to Himself, will be made
available exclusively to the new Pontiff.
