Pope’s butler, who was charged for leaking the documents containing proofs of alleged corruption and internal conflicts at the Holy See, has been given release from the custody. He is now shifted to house arrest.
The Vatican source has said that Paolo Gabriele, the alleged butler, will stay in this present condition until a concrete decision comes on whether he should confront trial for disclosing confidential documents to the print and electronic media.
The butler was brought under the accusation on May when a string of top secret papers containing evidences of fraud and internal clashes inside the Holy See were exposed before the media. His lawyer said that Gabriele had no other associates but acted on his own to show his love for the Pope.
The scandal known as ‘Vatileaks’ came under discussion when an Italian journalist published a series of sensitive documents containing the evidences of corruption such as nepotism, cronyism, and fraud scandals inside the Holy See. Earlier, the Italian media said that the documents were found in the apartment of Gabriele.
